Shaved Summer Squash Salad with Ricotta Salata & Charred Fennel
While spinach is a good leafy substitute for the sorrel in this salad, Ben Bebenroth, chef and owner of Cleveland's farm-to-table Spice Catering, sometimes uses thinly sliced raw rhubarb to mimic sorrel's tangy flavor in this summer squash salad.
Nutrition bonus: Vitamin C (83% daily value), Vitamin A (48% dv).
Tip: Sorrel, a lemony-tasting, leafy green herb, contains high amounts of oxalic acid, which imparts a tart flavor. Spinach--along with a good squeeze of lemon juice--makes an excellent substitute.
