Asian Crab Salad

Our third food and wine pairing in this series is the 2020 Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling which another_food_blogger has matched with Asian Crab Salad. 

The purity, acidity, citrus and refreshing zing of our Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling is the perfect accompaniment to the sweet rich crab meat in this Asian salad. The perfect recipe to celebrate these long mild summer evenings.
