Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Avocado-Orange Salsa

Wine Note Salmon works with many white wines (and even some reds), but when the nutty, woodsy flavor of a charred cedar plank is factored in, I'd serve a California chardonnay. It, too, has nutty woodsy flavors, and a creamy, citrusy chardonnay will also mirror the creaminess of the avocado and the citrusiness of the orange. –Karen MacNeil
