The light pear and almond flavors of the wine harmonize very well with this summer salad. The wine has a bright yellow color and is to be enjoyed at a temperature of 9 – 10°C/48 – 50°F.
Allow couscous to stand and cook in boiled water, according to package instructions, and set aside.
Halve zucchini and cut into sticks. Finely chop rosemary and halve cherry tomatoes.

Toast cashews without oil in a small frying pan for approx. 2 – 3 min. until golden brown.
Heat some olive oil in a frying pan and fry zucchini on all sides for approx. 8 – 10 min. until tender. Remove from pan and set aside.
