Strawberry season marks the start of summer in Frank Family’s Winston Hill garden. Inspired by summer’s sweet berries, Chef Christina Machamer is sharing her Strawberry and Bacon Salad – perfect for a light lunch or side dish at the dinner table on a warm summer day. The varying textures and contrasting flavors of strawberries, feta, greens, and bacon creates the perfect balance of sweet and slightly salty. Plus the freshness and citrus-like acidity of Frank Family’s 2021 Leslie Rosé makes for an ideal pairing – balancing the sweetness while enhancing the complexity of the dish.
