Shane stayed late at work tonight, so he missed out on the glory that was this salad:
What is it? Two small zucchinis and two small summer squashes, sliced lengthwise and grilled. A chiffonade of mint and basil from the garden. Soft goat cheese and toasted pine nuts. And I ate it ALL. Every last bite. And here is a funny Photobooth picture to prove it:
The recipe called for boiling the squash, then tossing all ingredients with a light vinaigrette. I prefer the squash grilled, and there was enough moisture and flavor from the grilling that I didn’t think the dressing was necessary. Maybe next time I’ll use the dressing – and will share the salad with Shane.
