Chardonnay, Gruener Veltliner, and Sauvignon Blanc 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. The District 7 Estate Chardonnay with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 18 dollars per bottle.

District 7 Estate Chardonnay

Our 2012 vintage has aromas of tropical fruit and butterscotch that lead into a lively blend of pear, pineapple and citrus flavors

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you are cooking with wine, be aware that the amount of alcohol that evaporates could be much less than you think. In fact, researchers found that anywhere between 4 and 49 percent of the alcohol in a dish might remain depending on the cooking method, length of cooking, etc. If you're concerned about the amount of alcohol you're consuming, keep an eye on how much wine is going into your dish!

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • When buying wine for cooking, it is certainly not a bad idea to buy a wine you would enjoy drinking (some wine for the dish, some wine for the chef?) But if your favorite wines cost a small fortune, save them for drinking and purchase a cheaper?though still good quality!?wine for cooking. Just don't buy "cooking wine" with added salt, food coloring, etc.

  • Don't have any wine in the house? Red wine vinegar and white wine vinegar can be used to deglaze pans. Chicken/beef broth or grape juice can also be used in place of wine in a pinch, especially if a recipe only calls for a small amount.

  • When buying celery, make sure the stalks feel firm and the leaves look fresh. Store in your refrigerator's crisper for up to two weeks.

Green Tips

  • Grapes are one of the so-called "dirty dozen", so if you are concerned about pesticide residues in your food, buy organic grapes (and raisins!)

  • According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), celery is one of the worst vegetables in term of pesticide residue. If you're trying to reduce pesticide residue in your diet, be sure to buy organic celery.
