Dinner Last Night: Sea Bass with Chopped Salad and Summer Squash

The two recipes below make for a fantastic summer meal, but are very labor intensive – especially the salad. BUT – Nathan said this was “the best salad I’ve had in a long time.” I worked so hard, and it all looked so good, that I busted out the china! But we actually do that a lot. Why not? 

Summer Chopped Salad with Quick-Pickled Vegetables

  • Source: Food and Wine
  • My Substitutions: 1) Green pepper instead of yellow and 2) Mixed Green salad instead of the frisee/arugula/cabbage combo. In both cases, swapped them out cuz that’s what we already had in the fridge-and that’s how I roll.

Roasted Sea Bass with Summer Squash

  • Source: Food and Wine
  • My Substitutions: 1) Tilapia instead of sea bass or snapper, but only because the grocery store didn’t have either of those (wha???) and 2) I use de-boned/skinned fish instead of whole (Gross. Last time I checked, I didn’t know how to de-scale a fish. Ew. I have my limits).


About Mosaic Collective, LLC

I am Holly Baumann Ambuehl, founding member of Mosaic Collective, LLC, which was founded in early 2017 and is based in Central Illinois. I own and operate Mosaic Collective with my partner in business and life, my husband, Nathan. Mosaic Collective, LLC houses our rental property, my consulting contracts (with the nonprofit and public sectors on various work), and also my commercial and portrait photography business, which has been doing business as Holly Baumann Photography since 2008 long before the formation of our LLC. My blog posts feature client work, but I just love to write, so I also write about owning a business, food and drink, travel, and sometimes, my personal life! I am always honored when clients trust me to capture their vision, and equally so when my readers converse with me about what I've photographed or expressed here. I hope we'll have an opportunity to collaborate professionally and/or become friends. I'd love to hear what you think! - Holly
