100 Favorite Dishes, No. 24: Blistered Shishitos at the Cedars Social

Leading up to September's Best of Dallas® 2016 issue, we're sharing (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes, the Dallas entrées, appetizers and desserts that really stuck with us this year.

If you don't believe that a big bowl of veggies can make for a killer bar snack, you clearly haven't tried the blistered shishitos at the Cedars Social. It couldn't be a simpler dish, but that's the glory of shishitos — the sweet summer pepper turns into an incredible snack when sauteed with a little sea salt and butter. 

If you're gonna take in a few thousand booze-calories, keep it light with this $9 bowl of fresh summer magic. Drizzle the charred lime on the peppers for a little extra zing.
