Once the summer squash and zucchini start popping up, they don’t really stop–not for a while at least. (Anyone who’s ever grown either of them in a garden before will definitely be familiar with this!) While most of us could probably eat warm-weather treats like strawberries and blueberries by the bucket, however, eating plain, raw summer squash can get sort of boring after a while. Sure, its cool and crunchy, and goes well in salads or with any number of dips, but after that, you need to branch out–probably one of the reasons there are so many great recipes utilizing the veggies in all sorts of ways. If you’re looking for a way (or more than one!) to use up your summer squash and zucchini, check out some of these deliciously good-for-you recipes:
