Raw Squash Salad

We've been eating a lot more raw foods lately, and we tried this salad tonight. It was light and refreshing--and healthy to boot. Plus, it's a creative way to use up some of that zucchini that's overtaking your garden! (Why is this underlined? Don't ask me.)

  • 2 summer squash or zucchini (or one of each)
  • 1 tomato
  • bunch of red spring onions or scallions (I used 4 and it was plenty!)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2Tbs olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 leaves of minced fresh basil
  • cheese (feta, romano, etc.)
  1. Cut zucchini and squash into thin slices;chop tomatoes and red spring onion or scallion. Combine in one bowl.
  2. Add olive oil,salt,pepper and lemon juice into separate bowl and whisk together. Add basil
  3. Drizzle dressing over vegetables. Sprinkle cheese on top to taste.
  4. Store in fridge until ready to eat. It's nice if it has a bit of time to marinate.
