Backyard Picnic Menu

Bean salads are a summer staple because they don't wilt over time. This one dresses blanched fresh beans with crisp pancetta, chopped pistachios and a drizzle of vinaigrette. When pairing wines with a light dish like a salad, match the weight of the wine with the weight of the dish. Look for wines that are Light & Crisp, such as Oggi Botter Pinot Grigio or Beringer Founders Estate Pinot Grigio. Both have flavours of green apple and pear — so refreshing with this crisp salad.
