And another summer salad

This was sooo good.  I wish I had more squash from our garden!  

Shaved Summer Squash Salad (4 servings)
from Bon Appetit, June 2011

1 lb summer squash (mix of green and yellow)
2 1/2 T extra-virgin olive oil
2 T fresh lemon juice
1 minced garlic clove
1-2 cups of baby arugula
3 T whole almonds, toasted and coarsely crushed
or 3 T pine nuts, toasted
salt and pepper to taste
freshly shaved pecorino or parmasean cheese

Trim the ends off of the squash and use a vegetable peeler to thinly slice the squash lengthwise into strips.  Transfer to a large bowl.  In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic clove, and salt (to taste).  Pour dressing over squash and let stand for a few minutes.  Then, add some baby arugula, shave some cheese over the top and toss.  Season with salt and pepper.  Garnish with the nuts.

  1. That looks good!

  2. Thought you'd like it - raw, gf, sugar free and would be vegan if you leave out the cheese :)

  3. I'm going through a lemon dressing phase so this is perfect.

  4. I just made this last night. Divine! Thanks for the recipe.
