Wine Tip

Rioja rosé, dry, 2010
This Spanish rosé goes brilliantly with this Spanish national dish. The fruity bouquet emphasizes the aroma of the cantaloupe and gently offsets the slight kick of the chili.

Step 1

Cut cantaloupe, tomatoes, cucumber, and pepper into bite-sized pieces. Pick and chop basil into strips. Roughly chop garlic and dice shallot.
