Rosé is so popular, it has its own national holiday every June! But sipping it is just one way to enjoy it. Chef David Duarte has on rose-colored glasses and cooks with it too. Try the three recipes below!

1. Strawberry Salad with Rosé Vinaigrette 

Did you know you can make a scrumptious vinaigrette using rosé? Here’s a recipe that uses strawberries, rosé and, red wine vinegar to build a sweet yet acidic flavor profile. This makes the perfect Father’s Day salad if you ask us! 


  • 8 large strawberries 
  • 6 T. rosé 
  • 4 T. red wine vinegar 
  • 8 T. olive oil 
  • 3 T. sugar 
  • Pinch salt 


In a blender, mix strawberries, sugar, red wine vinegar, and rosé until smooth. 

Pour mix into a large mixing bowl, and slowly add olive oil while whisking until well-incorporated.  

Pour over salad of your choice. 


2. Pork Belly with Rosé Compote 

Next is another delicious Father’s Day recipe: a savory pork belly with a sweet rosé compote. Pork belly is actually one of the easiest things to make—it’s like meatloaf! But if pork belly isn’t your thing, you can substitute with your favorite pork chop or pork tenderloin recipe –or even grilled chicken!  

Compote Ingredients  

  • 1/2 cup rosé 
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 cup fine diced, peeled apple 
  • 1/4 cup rough chopped raspberries 
  • Pinch salt 

Compote Directions                

Add all ingredients to a small pot and reduce by 2/3 or until thickened. 

Pork Belly Ingredients 

  • 2 lbs. pork belly 
  • 1 clove garlic, fine minced 
  • 1 shallot, thin sliced 
  • 1 sprig fresh time 
  • 1 stick fresh rosemary 
  • Salt and pepper 
  • 1 T. allspice 
  • Water as needed 

Pork Belly Directions 

Pre-heat oven to 350. 

Place pork belly into baking pan big enough to hold belly, and enough water to come up to fat layer on pork belly.  

Score fat cap of pork belly and sprinkle allspice and salt and pepper over top and rub into scored belly.  

Add garlic, shallots, rosemary, and thyme across top of pork belly. 

Fill pan with enough water to come up to where the fat cap starts, submerging only the meat portion.  

Cover with plastic wrap and aluminum foil, assuring it’s air-tight. 

Bake at 350 for 3 hours.  

Once pork belly is done, cut into square pieces and drizzle compote over top. 


3. Vanilla Cake with Rosé Frosting

Finally, serve something sweet on Father’s Day with this recipe for vanilla cake with rosé frosting. Break out your favorite box cake, because we’re about to fancy it up. Making your own frosting is simple and easy to enhance. We’ll be adding some blueberries and rosé to our cream cheese, and sugar mixture to make a delicate and pretty frosting. You don’t even have to make the cake from scratch! We support box cake. Since it’s a basic frosting, it’s also great on cupcakes or your favorite sweet treat. 


  • 1 package Philadelphia cream cheese 
  • Blueberries 
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar 
  • 2 cups rosé 


Reduce rosé by 2/3 and put in refrigerator to let cool. 

Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar and cream cheese with wooden or plastic spoon and put back in refrigerator. 

Once all are completely cooled, mix in reduced rosé with cream cheese and frost cake.
