This roast recipe is from the Malinda Russell inspired Family Meal. She has a Nasturtium caper recipe, which I’ve expanded into a salad. It’s fresh and herbaceous. It pairs nicely with fatty dishes such as this Madeira Braised Pork Roast.
When served as a side dish, pair this salad with the same wine as the main entreé. If enjoying this dish on its own, this dish pairs nicely with grassy white wines. Try a Sauvignon Blanc with this salad.
Grove Mill Sauvignon Blanc 2019
The wine has a very intense entry onto the palate starting at the tip of the tongue and spreading out towards the very back in a wave of flavour. The acidity is quite apparent with great intensity of feijoa lime and minerality leaving the palate with a very long finish.
Ktima Gerovassiliou (Κτήμα Γεροβασιλείου) Sauvignon Blanc-Fumé 2017
It has a bouquet of tropical notes including pineapple melon and a bright yellow-gold colour and toasty vanilla on the palate. Length complexity and structure are some of the oak benefits.
Rapaura Springs Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Intense Sauvignon Blanc with strong guava passion fruit lime and a suggestion of nutty yeast lees character. The wine has a weighty mouth-filling texture and lengthy finish.
