Different types of lettuce can strengthen bitterness in wine. Other components like fruits, vegetables, protein, cheese, can demand texture. However, one of the most dominant factors in a salad is the dressing. Here you want to make sure that the acid in the wine accommodates the acidity in the salad dressing.
WINE PAIRING IDEAS FOR SALADS:
A salad prepared with protein and a strong cheese would go well with a full-bodied white wine-Chardonnay, Viognier, Semillon or red wine with low tannin- Gamay, Beaujolais, Rose (off-dry), Pinot Noir
When in doubt… I always go for a fabulous sparkling wine!
