Chardonnay, Gruener Veltliner, and Sauvignon Blanc are my top picks 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 NV Mindbender Chardonnay with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 12 dollars per bottle.

NV Mindbender Chardonnay

Lightly Oaked, the Mindbender Chardonnay is a sophisticated style of Chardonnay, that is full of the best elements of this classic grape varietal. The aromatics are complex and welcoming with floral and citrus tones mixed with hints of honeysuckle and butterscotch. The good percentage of oak aging brings a lovely vanilla note. The Mindbender Chardonnay is here to make you see Chardonnay in a new and innovative way. The Mindbender Chardonnay is a sophisticated style of Chardonnay, that is full of the best elements of this classic grape varietal. Visually it is golden straw in color.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Unfortunately feta cheese is high in sodium, so if you're watching your sodium intake you might need to substitute another cheese. Some say rinsing the cheese also reduces its sodium content.

  • With feta cheese, a little goes a long way, so you probably don't need to worry about using low fat varieties (plus, research suggests people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who eat reduced fat products!)

Price Tips

  • Avocados are one of the "clean fifteen", so you don't have to buy them organic if you don't want to spend the extra dough.

  • 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

  • Traditionally, feta cheese is made from sheep's or goat's milk (or a combination of the two). Now some supermarkets sell "feta-style" cheeses made from cow's milk. If you want the authentic feta experience, be sure to read the label carefully.

  • If you're buying an avocado to use for dinner tonight, make sure you choose a ripe one! Find an avocado that is soft enough to press your fingertips into. If it's too firm, it's not ripe. If it's almost smooshy, it's too ripe. The perfect avocado can be hard to find in stores, so you might have to buy your avocados in advance and ripen them at home. To speed up the ripening process, put the avocados in a paper bag with an apple or banana. It really works!

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.
