Share in summer’s harvest with Villeroy and Boch pasta bowls. Great year round for pasta, salads and this yummy treat.
Summer squash salads are a wonderful and healthy meal during these warm summer months.
With clean eating a strong focus, we are loving this summer squash salad. It is almost like a yummy pasta dish, but without the pasta (ie., carbs, wheat and calories). The summer squash does a great job as a flavor carrier, so this dish gives off a rich and hearty flavor of sweet blistered tomatoes, garlic and thyme. This recipe is a meal if you want it to be or a fabulous side to your barbeque meats. Enjoy!
Recipe: Summer Squash Salad with Blistered Tomatoes
2 lbs. yellow squash, choose smaller ones
1 pint grape tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tb. fresh thyme leaves
1 Tb. butter
1 Tb. olive oil (or use Land O’Lakes Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt and nix the oil)
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat.
Trim the ends of the squash. Quarter each squash and slice into pieces, 1/3 inch thick.
Add the butter and oil to the skillet, followed by and squash and garlic. Toss and sear for 2-5 minutes, until barely cooked through. Salt and Pepper to taste.
Push the squash to the sides of the skillet and add the tomatoes. Cook and toss another 2-3 minutes until the tomatoes are just about to pop. Stir in the fresh thyme and remove from heat.
