Mapiabelle Ideal pairings salads and wine

Sometimes you don't feel like cooking, so you opt for a salad. But then you wonder how to pair that salad with wine.

Well look no further. We have the perfect pairing for those nights when all you feel like is a quick meal and a glass of wine.

This time, we will see the best way to pair your favorite salad with wine. There can be confusion when it comes to wine and salad, since there are so many different vegetables, cheeses, and meats. But it turns out that the key is in the dressing: we share some recommendations on what type of wines to choose!

Classic Ranch Salad

A creamy, lush Chardonnay will live up to the creamy, tangy ranch dressing spread with iceberg lettuce, tossed salads are a classic "let's make what's in the fridge" meal. So why not pair them with a wine that's probably right on the side?

If you're looking for something more than a beer to accompany your mixed salad (and who isn't?), Chardonnay is a great choice. The wine offers a good balance of fruit and acidity, which can help cut through the rich flavors of your salad without getting in the way of its delicate textures.

Antipasto Salad with Italian Dressing

We love salad. And we love wine. So it's logical that we go crazy about pairing them, right?

If you're looking for a flavorful wine with high acidity and citrus notes, Verdicchio is perfect with an herbal Italian dressing. It also combines wonderfully with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and cold cuts common in antipasto salads.

That waits? Go ahead and make this perfect pairing!

Caesar salad

The answer is: one of the best options to pair it with is with Màh and Pàh Viognier. This citrus and mineral combination produces a perfect mix for this salad, which also includes anchovies and romaine lettuce.

The light body of the wine helps the ingredients not overwhelm the vegetables. In addition, the flavor of the wine is not lost when it is drunk together with the rest of the salad ingredients.

Cooking Honey Mustard Salad

Pinot Noir is already a friend of turkey and ham; We're here to tell you it has a new best friend: salads!

Salads are great, full of fresh, healthy ingredients, and can be a main dish, side dish, or even a snack. But why stop there? Why not add wine to the salad? It is the perfect pairing for any occasion.

And what better wine than Baja Californian Pinot Noir? Its light body complements the crisp vegetables, while its rich flavors mingle with the sweetness and spiciness of honey mustard.

It's a match made in heaven...or maybe just Californian!

Southwest Salad with Creamy Chipotle Dressing

If you're looking for a variety that can handle the spiciness of chipotle dressing, look no further than Grenache. This beautiful variety has the guts to withstand the spicy flavor of chipotle dressing. And its smokiness, combined with red fruits and a touch of citrus, pairs perfectly with the play of lime in the salad dressing.

Greek salad

If you are a fan of Greek food, why not try some fascinating Greek wines? We recommend the Assyrtiko or the Verdejo.

Assyrtiko. This lean white is light enough not to overwhelm the tomato and olive flavors, and it stands up to oil and vinegar. The refreshing minerality and notes of lime and honey provide just the right flavor to enhance the flavor of this salad without overpowering it.

Verdejo. This light-bodied white is perfect for pairing with Mediterranean cuisine because it has very good acidity: it will cut the fat in the salad without overwhelming the palate. It has a citrus and fresh flavor that will perfectly complement the salad.

Pairing options with salads

Fruit salad with honey dressing

The perfect wine pairing with salads is Mapiabelle Rosado.

The bright, explosive peach flavor and bright floral notes of this rosé pair perfectly with the berries, grapes and honey in salads. And what else? This wine comes from the region of our favorite wines: the Valle de Guadalupe.

So be sure to bring a bottle for your next picnic or barbecue.
