Scott Phillips

Servings: 6

When shaved into long, thin ribbons, summer squash more readily soaks up flavor—plus, it’s fun to eat.

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. chopped capers
  • 1 Tbs. minced shallots
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • Flaky sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1/4 lb. yellow squash and green zucchini, trimmed and cut in half crosswise

    This recipe has a whole lot of deliciousness going on, with the bright lemon juice, sharp parsley, and nutty almonds-- all this and garlic too. The zucchini is a little tender, but retains a gentle crunch. What a delicious dish! My husband doesn't particularly like zucchini (too much zucchini-and-tomato stew in the 70's), but he went back for seconds. He said "it's almost like it isn't zucchini at all." Then he ate the rest.
