The Perfect Prosecco To Have With Salad

2nd February 2022

Prosecco and Salad

When looking for the best Prosecco to have with salad, you might just look in your local supermarket and pick up a bottle at random and hope for the best, but you don’t have to, Prosecco, in general, will go great with a variety of different salads, so you’re going to be pretty safe, but in this article, I’ve created 3 delicious Salads with help from Salad Topper and paired them with 3 amazing Proseccos from Bisol, that don’t just work, they excel.

Although a cheaper choice compared to Champagne, in this case, spending less, doesn’t mean you get any less for your money, sometimes it can even mean you get more bang for your buck, Prosecco doesn’t just taste great, it goes well in Cocktails, Pairs well with lots of dishes and will still put smiles on people’s faces.

All three of these combinations work brilliantly, I’m starting with my personal favourite, if you’re a fan of Tropical Fruit, then you will love this Salad, I’ve also created a Ham Salad and a Walnut and Apple Salad, all paired with Bisol’s Prosecco, so let’s find out a little about their incredible history.

Bisol has been around since 1542, 5 centuries and they have had 21 generations working on creating great tasting wine, the only time Bisol was interrupted was during the First World War, the Valdobbiadene territory (where Bisol is located) stood right on the battle lines between the Austrian-Hungarian forces and their opponents, the Italians, but in 1920 they were back on track and once again pushing the boundaries and bringing people’s taste buds forward into the future.
