Good with? (Food or activities)

Citrusy salads, cheese curds, guacamole; Maggie’s recommendation is caramelized sweet potatoes with goat cheese and cranberry, grilled chicken sandwich, pork chops, shrimp scampi, crab, lobster, scallops, whitefish, lightly breaded walleye with lemon pepper and butter.

Clearly I can go on and on and on. While I wouldn’t specifically pair this one with heavier dark meats and meals, it could work as a quencher for BBQ’s on a nice hot day. Maybe it’s just that damn good.
