We thought this would match delightfully and is a perfect recipe for an early summer evening or light lunch. We loved the wine, its delicate aroma opening into a really fresh, crisp yet fleshy fruit flavour. The elements of Emily’s beautiful simple salad will compliment this wine; crisp peppery rocket, salty black olives, the zesty acidity of lemon, the freshness of the beans all balanced by creamy mozzarella.

It is in the simplicity of this dish that I find much of the pleasure.

Mozzarella, broad bean, olive, lemon and rocket salad. This recipe serves four.
Boil the broad beans until tender. Drain and season, add stoned small black olives. Toss the rocket and mint leaves with lemon juice and olive oil, and season. Tear the mozzarella into four. Put the leaves on the plate with the mozzarella. Sprinkle over the olives and beans.
