In a small, dry skillet, toast the cumin seeds, coriander seeds, chile, and pine nuts over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Transfer the dressing to a serving bowl and whisk in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Add the olives, tomatoes, cilantro and cheese. Toss gently to combine and serve.
*Cooks Note: The dried chile can also be cut into small rings using scissors.
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner are my top picks for Salad. Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner both have herby notes that complement salads with enough acid to match tart vinaigrettes, while a Chardonnay can be a good pick for creamy salad dressings. You could try Three Sticks Durell Vineyard Origin Chardonnay. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 50 dollars per bottle.
Three Sticks Durell Vineyard Origin ChardonnayWhite gold in the glass with aromas of lemon blossom and fresh fig, this wine offers a refreshing take on Durell Vineyard. Fermented in concrete eggs, the wine exhibits Durell's signature minerality juxtaposed with a smooth and round mouthfeel. Ageing on the lees in stainless steel barrels develop palate presence, fresh citrus fruit enlivens the wine. Hints of summer peach highlight the long, luscious finish.
