These healthy recipes are all created to pair with wine (which has 120 to 150 calories for a 5-ounce glass)—all for 600 calories or fewer.
Something about transitioning into the springtime has me craving bitter greens and vegetables, like radicchio. According to Chinese medicine, I learned that this is actually quite normal.
When it came to wine, however, I thought a good pairing was impossible. If I even attempted to drink wine with bitter veggies, I assumed it would have to be light and zippy. But then one night, I happened to try a radicchio salad with a richly textured southern French white made from Grenache Blanc. If these wines have enough acidity (when they're not good, they can taste flat), they are some of the most versatile pairing wines out there.
