Wine pairing- Master sommelier Constantinos Lazarakis
This is an intense, refreshing salad, with complex aromas straight out of the Greek summer. It is a lightly flavored dish, the central element being its crystalline acidity. A white wine of the Moschofilero variety would be the ideal choice, since its high aromatic intensity and crispy acidity will bring the dish together; its light body is also perfectly balanced with the salad.
