Summer Squash Salad

At this time of the year, market stands are filled with summer squash of all shapes and sizes. Incorporating this refreshingly light vegetable into your meals doesn't have to be complicated; in fact, it can involve no preparation at all. 

The squash in this salad is served raw, and simply shaved into ribbons using a vegetable peeler. Layer on top of your favourite summer vegetables, top with avocado and feta and you have the perfect light summer salad.

Method

Arrange tomatoes into layers on a plate and top with the squash ribbons.
