July! You have slipped by so fast we almost missed out on our monthly edition of Taco Tuesday!
This month we are inspired by a fresh strawberries, lime, and shrimp recipe from the current issue of Edible Ventura County paired with three crisp, bright white Viura wines from Spain.
This simple menu let the wines shine– and brought out all of the various flavors in the food! MAGIC!
The crunch of the jicama with the bit of strawberry makes this taco a unique combination of flavor explosions. I loved the strawberry notes with these wines. This wine and food pairing for this evening was over the top, the food the wine, it all went perfectly. Bright acidity in wine, and bright acidity in the food.

Oysters from the Baja’s Jolly Oyster and Vons

WINES from Spain
All three wines wowed us — so good with the food! So refreshing for the price! All three $12 or under.
