This Artichoke & White Button Mushroom Salad recipe is the perfect mix to spice up any summer’s day. Enjoy on its own or as a start for a full meal.

We’ve paired this salad with a delicious gin and tonic cocktail using Cape Fynbos Gin.

The earthy tones of the mushrooms and the mild lemony taste from the artichokes harmonise and add complexity to this gin and tonic. The Cape Fynbos Gin’s sweet smoothness also works well with the acidity of the dressing, creating a sumptuous pairing.
