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.

Salad can be paired with Chardonnay, Alcoholic Drink, and White Wine. 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. You could try Dutton-Goldfield Dutton Ranch Chardonnay. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 43 dollars per bottle.

Dutton-Goldfield Dutton Ranch Chardonnay

2013 was another stellar growing season in the Russian River Valley; warm spring, great flowering weather, and a long moderate ripening season. Our blocks for the Dutton Ranch blend were harvested between September 9 and October 11; the fruit was beautifully clean and ripe, and gave us wines with the acid backbone and luscious citrus and stone fruit flavors we so love from our neighborhood. This wine is about freshness and balance: in the nose it leads with Meyer lemon, pear and mineral notes, with tropical and ginger overtones. In the mouth, the lusciousness of this season is balanced by solid acidity and an evolving fruit core that keeps you coming back. Lemon sourball, ripe pear and a touch of green apple fill out the fruit profile, while the steely minerality and sweet cream add a complexity that we love in this wine. Moderate alcohol and the signature juicy acidity of Green Valley facilitate the fresh, lingering citrus/ginger finish. This is a wine that evolves in the glass and will easily reward 5 years of cellar aging, but both will be a challenge with its immediate allure.
