Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner
Salad works really well with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner. 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. The Willamette Valley Vineyards Dijon Clone Chardonnay with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 22 dollars per bottle.
