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).
