Pairing Salads with Eric Ripert : Perfect Pairings

In this episode of Perfect Pairings, Ripert talks about salads and pairing complicated dishes with many elements. Usually we let the market and season dictate what goes into a salad, and generally salads have a base of lettuce or other greens like spinach or arugula. These greens can be a challenge to pair wine with on their own because of strong, chlorophyll elements that exist in the leaves.
