*What's a summer squash?
Summer squash and zucchini have soft, thin skin that's perfectly textured for eating, unlike the hard, shell-like skins of winter squash. Ever dropped a butternut squash on your foot? A sweet yellow summer squash would never hurt you like that. Tender and mild, they can be eaten raw or cooked, too. Summer squash includes varieties like green or yellow zucchini, yellow squash, pattypan, cousa, or zephyr squash. Harvested while immature, any of the squash you find at your summer farmer's market should be perfect for use in this recipe.
