This Shaved Squash Salad is inspired by one of the dishes I enjoyed most on a recent trip to one of my favorite places—Orange Beach, Alabama. In truth, this recipe is my attempt to re-create the restaurant version of the salad. Does it taste exactly like the original? Probably not. But both are fantastic!

Served alongside your protein of choice, this squash salad makes a lovely, light meal perfect for summertime, or for nights that feel like summertime—like the ones we’ve been having in Minnesota lately! We love it with my homemade Mustard Vinaigrette recipe, but I’m sure lots of different homemade salad dressings would taste delicious with it!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound summer squash ends trimmed, sliced into "ribbons"
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/3 cup toasted pecans crumbled
  • 1/3 cup chevre goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup Mustard Vinaigrette

Instructions

  • Add prepared squash, onion, pecans and goat cheese to a large bowl, pour dressing over top and toss well.

Notes

We recommend organic ingredients whenever possible.
If you are trying to avoid GMO's definitely choose organic squash as varieties not labeled organic may be genetically-modified.
For this recipe I used two zucchini and one yellow squash, but most varieties (and any combination) of summer squash would work.
I used the straight blade on my Paderno Spiralizer to quickly turn the squash into ribbons. If you don't have a Spiralizer, a vegetable peeler or mandoline slicer would work great too.
