Lobster season is approaching off the coast of Florida, but I'll bet seafood is on people's minds across the country. Wouldn't a crab Louie salad  be the perfectly crisp, briny match for the Summer of Riesling?

Not all of us in the states have a coastside advantage, but don't dare let that stop you from trying these recipes. Consider this your own personal tour of the nation's best.
