Fresh herbs! Flowering trees! Short sleeves! After what feels like an eternity of bracing winds and sludgy mornings, we are finally throwing open our windows and saying hello to a fresh, new season.

If you’re as thrilled as we are, you may be thinking a bit of celebration is in order—and what better way to revel in the warmer weather than with a long pour of crisp, white wine? Even if you don't drink, it can still be the perfect complement to a host of spring meals: Used to braise, deglaze, or make a sauce, white wine can add a sharp-but-not-too-sharp counterpoint that balances out a dish's best notes without overpowering more delicate flavors. To get you started, here are 16 recipes to make right now that incorporate white wine:
