Choosing vinegars and oils
When pairing wine with salads, make your salad dressing more wine-friendly by using less vinegar than usual.
Experiment with wine-friendly vinegars, from Banyuls to sherry, to achieve the best match for a wine. While verjus is often cited as wine-friendly for its lower acidity, beware its higher levels of tannin.
Use lighter oils (such as canola or non-virgin olive) when pairing with lighter wines, and stronger oils (such as extra-virgin olive, which has stronger olive and pepper flavors) with bigger wines.
