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. One wine you could try is Poppy Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay. It has 4.7 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 16 dollars.
Poppy Santa Lucia Highlands ChardonnayYouthful notes of lemon and honeysuckle are layered over ripe melon, nutmeg, and clove. The perception of sweetness is derived from fruit ripeness, aging on regularly stirred yeast lees in the presence of aged French Oak.
