Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

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team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes about 15 minutes. Similar recipes are Fresh Tomato Mozzarella Side Salad, Fresh Tomato Mozzarella Side Salad, and Fresh Mozzarella & Tomato Salad.

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. One wine you could try is Cakebread Reserve Chardonnay. It has 4.5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 65 dollars.

Cakebread Reserve Chardonnay

The 2014 Chardonnay Reserve offers seductively fresh, creamy aromas of golden apple and Asian pear fruit nicely complemented by notes of creme brulee, vanilla and mineral. Rich and full on the palate, the wine reveals a core of deeply concentrated spiced apple, melon and citrus flavors that maintain their intensity throughout a long, mineral-tinged finish. Boasting deep reserves of fruit coupled with exemplary balance, the Chardonnay Reserve is delicious now, but will age beautifully in bottle for another 5-7 years. Pair this wine with sweet potato soup with chestnuts and brandy.
