  3. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.

Wine Pairing :

  • chardonnay
  • gruener veltliner
  • sauvignon blanc

Salad can be paired with Chardonnay, Gruener Veltliner, and Sauvignon Blanc. 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.
