FFWD Vanilla Vegetable Salad + Tuna and Mango Ceviche
I know I've said this before, but we really aren't an appetizer family these days. I love appetizer food, but we just don't have the time or energy to eat in courses. So I served the starters from the last two weeks, with a fritatta on the side, as our dinner this Tuesday. The hardest part of this dish was probably procuring the sushi-grade tuna. The Whole Foods near my house didn't have any, but luckily I've noticed that the Whole Foods near my work has a special freezer case with sushi-grade fish. I've never paid much attention to it before, but it was perfect for this week. The fish is expensive, frozen at an unusually cold temperature, and only keeps in a home refrigerator for about a week, but it was perfect for a special-occasion recipe like this. We, Paul especially, loved the ceviche. The mango and avocado really made the dish for me. The Vanilla Vegetable salad, was okay. I didn't dislike it, but the vanilla really didn't do anything for me. I doubt it's one I'll be making again.
