Chicken Salad is a perfect summertime dish, and what better to pair it with then a simple summer wine? Look for a bottle of FAT bastard Rose at your local liquor store (I’ve found bottles for $4.99). The sweet, fruity flavor compliments the honey and Dijon mustard of the chicken salad perfectly, while not emptying your wallet. If you want to enjoy the last few days of summer with chicken salad and a perfect sangria, add 1 bottle of FAT bastard Rose, 20 ounces of frozen strawberries, 12 ounces of frozen lemonade concentrate, 2 cups of pineapple juice, 2 cups of mango vodka and ½ a liter of ginger ale! Enjoy your Lunch-box chicken salad sandwich and a liter of FAT Bastard Sangria responsibly.
A heavier chardonnay with a strong oak flavor could work as well, if you prefer a dry white. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different wines
