Luckily, summer is in full swing on the other side of the globe, and the fruits and veggies that abound there at this time of the year make a welcome appearance on our market shelves.
So when I see ripe avocados and mangoes piled high at my local grocery store, I am relieved and happy for the little bit of sunshine they bring with them!
然后我让阳光穿过我准备的菜肴，就像这个简单但美味的沙拉一样。鳄梨和芒果切片藏在美味的拥抱中，而芝麻菜提供脆脆，辛辣的床。龙舌兰酒醋汁乞求在整个事情上淋上，脆皮玉米饼条增加了触感的乐趣 - 你的牙齿将幸福地搏斗。
This salad never fails to chase my winter blues away!
A white wine with citrus and tropical notes isde rigueur.这里。从奥地利或来自一个较温暖的地区的Sauvignon Blanc看看Gewürztraminer，就像在新西兰的北岛的Martinborough。
