This salad will pair well with pork – think marinated spare ribs or honey-glazed loin. The caramelized flavours that develop during cooking call for a moderate amount of sweetness in the wine and an off-dry Riesling or Chenin Blanc are both good choices. For the red wine drinker, the key is a fruit-forward wine with moderate alcohol and low tannin – new-wave Cinsaut or Grenache are good options.
