Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Mexican. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. One wine you could try is Willamette Valley Vineyards Whole Cluster rosé of Pinot Noir. It has 4.5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 19 dollars.

Willamette Valley Vineyards Whole Cluster Rose of Pinot Noir

This wine is exquisitely aromatic with notes ofnectarine, jasmine and ruby red grapefruit. Thepalate is juicy and displays fresh peach, kiwiand floral honeysuckle flavors while remainingbright and balanced by mouthwatering acidity.The finish carries tropical papaya and guavaessences well beyond the sip.Think picnic and dishes with fresh springand summer ingredients. Also enjoy withNicoise Salad, Antipasto Platters, Lime andCoconut Grilled Shrimp, and Cheese Plates.

Instructions

  1. Half the blueberries if you can, or lightly chop.
  2. Toss together the blueberries, shallots, ginger, and mint. In a bowl whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, and honey.
  3. Toss the lemon oil with the blueberries and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. This is definitely one of those recipes you can prepare to taste. A little more ginger, a little less mint or maybe a little more honey. Whatever you decide, itll be delicious!
  5. I love this fresh and flavorful salsa over grilled white fish; halibut, black cod, Hawaiian opah and grilled scallops.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Many people proclaim the health benefits of honey, saying it possesses antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Although the extent of its health benefits in humans remains unclear, studies have indeed confirmed that honey can help with cold symptoms and even heal wounds and prevent infections. If you're looking to reap the potential health benefits, dark raw honey is likely the best option.

  • Frozen (and potentially even canned) fruit and vegetables contain as much?if not more?vitamins than fresh versions that have been sitting around the supermarket too long. So don't hesitate to buy canned or frozen goods if your budget or the season doesn't allow for fresh!

Price Tips

  • Fresh herbs can be expensive, so don't let them go to waste. If you have any leftovers, you might be able to freeze them. The Kitchn recommends freezing hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme in olive oil, while Better Homes and Gardens suggests using freezer bags to freeze basil, chives, mint, and more.

Cooking Tips

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.

  • If you don't have shallots, you can try substituting leek, onion, or green onion along with a clove of garlic. The flavor won't be the same, but it should do in a pinch.

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • The average fresh lemon contains between 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lemon juice).

Green Tips

  • Please enjoy blueberries during the summer months when they are in season. Eating blueberries in winter means you're eating fruit that has either been transported a long distance or that has been grow in a greenhouse. Either way, their production is far from environmentally friendly, and you probably aren't doing your wallet any favors either. If you want blueberries in winter, buy them frozen!

  • Buying local honey from beekeepers in your area not only supports your community but helps those beekeepers protect bees! LocalHarvest can help you locate some tasty honey produced near you.
