Prawn Salad with Citrus Dressing

Pair with Manzanilla

Manzanilla, a dry white wine, pairs beautifully with this prawn salad and bright citrus dressing. The orange and lime bring out the fresh citrus notes in the Manzanilla, while the wine cuts the fat in the avocado and olive oil, making for a light and refreshing pairing.
