Here is a nice way to prepare summer squash in a salad. The beauty of these squashes is that they’re harvested with the skin still soft, so you don’t have to peel and can enjoy all the benefits of the rind. We like it with our onion bread.
Summer Squash Herb Salad
(Adapted from The Raw 50)
1/2 cup sun dried tomato – soaked for 2 hours, drained, and chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white onion (optional) – minced
1 tablespoon fresh oregano – minced
1 tablespoon fresh basil – minced
1 tablespoon fresh dill or lemon thyme – minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 zucchini – sliced on a mandoline or any way you like
2 yellow summer squash – sliced
In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, oil, onion, herbs, and salt. Add the squash and mix to cover with the marinade. Leave to marinate for 2 hours and serve.
