Summer Squash Ribbons


Here is a great way to use some of that squash from your garden.  I enjoyed the recipe but my handsome fella was not a fan.  I found it to be refreshing.

Try it out and you be the judge!

Summer Squash Ribbons


  • 1 1/2 pounds summer squash and zucchini

Cut the squash and zucchini into long, thin strips using a vegetable peeler.  You will discard the seedy cores.

Place the ribbons in a large bowl.

Add to the ribbons:

  • 2 T extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces Parmesan, shaved or shredded
  • 1/2 t kosher salt
  • 1/2 t pepper

Toss gently to combine and serve immediately.
