Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner

Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner are great choices 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. One wine you could try is Sterling Heritage Collection Napa Chardonnay. It has 4.4 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 17 dollars.
Sterling Heritage Collection Napa Chardonnay
Sterling Heritage Collection Napa Chardonnay
Balanced and complex, the Napa Valley Chardonnay layers fruit from several vineyards in the AVA, marrying the lush, bold ripeness of mid-valley with the richness and depth of Carneros. Bright, golden fruit opens the nose, rounded with notes of honey, caramel, baking spice and toast. A bold entry of lemons and ripe apple develops weight and viscosity as it evolves through the mouth. The barrel contribution leaves an almost-sweet almond impression across the finish.
