Spring is in the air, and with that comes arugula, spinach, avocado, mangoes, fava beans, sweet peas and lots of greens. There is nothing like a fresh salad, especially when the weather is starting to get warm.
Salads have multiple benefits as well, including vitamin sources of A, C, and K, in addition to minerals, such as iron and calcium. Salads are paired nicely with wine. If the salad has seafood or poultry with a cream based dressing, it goes well with a riesling or albarino. Pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc, and other white wines go well with lemon dressings.
