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.
