Holy guacamole! It’s California avocado season. And it’s Dungeness crab season. Thank you, Mother Nature, for your impeccable timing. Because nothing improves avocado toast like putting some sweet, fresh crabmeat on top. Corn tostadas make a crunchy base and—bonus points—they’re gluten free. Chill the white wine and enjoy.
Which Wine? California white wines can be lean and sprightly or rich and creamy. The perfect choice depends on the crab preparation. For this recipe, open a bright, refreshing California Sauvignon Blanc. Its acidity and citrus aromas complement the tostadas like a squeeze of fresh lime.
Did you know? California leads the way in sustainability. Whether you’re buying wine, salad greens or seafood, look for a sustainable choice. If crab isn’t available where you live, rockfish or lingcod could be a smart substitution.
