Riesling Salad Dressing

Salad Dressing

The zippy citrusy flavor of the Riesling and lemon together makes this dressing our favorite. If you  enjoy wine with salad the most important part is not to over season your dressing. Too much of vinegar and garlic and you will have a sour tasting wine. Over the years we learned that for a wine friendly dressing the key factor is balance and tiny amount from strong flavors like garlic, onion, chives to mention a few and you can marvel in your delicious success.

You can also substitute Riesling to Sauvignon Blanc, we did it many times…

We love the Gainey Wineries Riesling because of the perfect balance between fruitiness and vibrant acidity.
