Comida de Sorpresas

So often, what delights us  most about a dish is an unexpected combination flavors, the familiar, but in a new way. In this menu, we use watermelon in the appetizer, avocado in the soup, tomatillos raw in a salad and do a Mexican twist on what can only be called a lasagna. Provecho!
