Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 45 minutes. Taking all factors into account, this recipe earns a spoonacular score of 32%, which is rather bad. Similar recipes include Greek Zucchini Salad with Crumbled Feta, Asparagus & lentil salad with cranberries & crumbled feta, and Alaskan Smoked Salmon Nicoise Salad With Alouette Crumbled Feta.

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 Maddalena Chardonnay with a 4.9 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 13 dollars per bottle.

Maddalena Chardonnay

Barrel fermentation in French and American oak, malolactic fermentation, lees stirring, and sur lie aging develop this wine to its greatest potential. Maddalena Vineyard Chardonnay greets the nose with a potpourri of fruit-driven aromas, including citrus, guava, and orange peel. These aromas are complemented by a mineral element, described as "wet stones." Forward fruit is also revealed in the mouth, which is accompanied by good structure and a long, crisp finish.
