Perch with Cucumber and Potato Salad
It’s now summer and you want a quick meal but one that is light and delicious. So take advantage of Fresh & Natural’s deli and purchase the premade potato salad, then go to the freezer section and select some frozen perch fillets, and round things off by selecting some mixed salad greens and cucumber from the produce section. This is one tasty meal!
