Where do I get sundried tomatoes from?
I use fresh cherry tomatoes from my garden and make sun-dried tomatoes in the oven. This may take a while longer but it is so worth it in my opinion.

You can opt to buy some at your local grocer but it is so much better when they come fresh from your garden.
What wine pairs well with salad?
This salad has yellow mustard as one of the ingredients and because of its flavor profile, you will want a wine that will compliment but not overpower the salad. I would go with dry wines like a Chardonnay that is partially oaked, This will enhance the flavor of the salad and please the palate as well.
