A dry white

Look local!

Light and crisp would be the recommendation. You'll likely be eating this salad with something else, so consider the overall flavors of the meal. Because of how accessible this salad is, a lighter red will also work just fine. Suggest you stay away from aromatic whites and sweet wines.

Mama's Wisdom

Raw spinach, while high in calcium and iron, has oxalic acid, a calcium and iron absorption inhibitor. Combining with the vitamin C in the tomatoes helps aid iron absorption. Nuts and beans will add plant based protein, vitamins & minerals and healthy fats. Fresh vinaigrette is a fantastic alternative to many of the unhealthy dressings you'll find in stores.
