The stands at the market in August overflow with summer squash. Varying in textures and shapes, they give a splash of color to our summer salads. Pattypans, crooknecks, yellow zucchini and cousas. The varieties are limitless. We scooped up avocado squash, which is shaped just as its name suggests and has a creamy texture.
One of our favorite preparations for summer squash is to slice them into ribbons, let them marinate in dressing and layer herbs and nuts all throughout.
