Summer Recipe Non-contest

This is a refreshing summer salad with the star being zucchini ribbons. Farmer's markets are brimming with colorful produce that I can't wait to bring home and make into something delicious!
This is one of my 'throw together' salads using one zucchini cut into ribbons, one half of an avocado, romaine lettuce and radishes. It's not so much a specific recipe, but produce I enjoy putting together randomly and tossing with sesame oil and rice vinegar, black pepper and a touch of salt. For extra zing, I squeeze fresh lime juice over it before devouring it! Happy Summer! BB

Ooo! Ooo! I'm in! This is my most-est favorite-est summer salad that I use for potlucks, cookouts and bbqs cause it totally stands up to the heat and is portable and basically everything you would want for summer. https://food52.com/recipes...

My summer squash inspiration isn't really a recipe per se: slice different types of summer squash thinly (I use a mandolin), arrange in concentric circles on a plate, drizzle with good extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice and then finish with torn basil, crumbled fresh goat cheese, lemon zest + flaky sea salt & freshly ground pepper. Et volià!

Okay here is my "entry" My A/C is broken so I am not allowed to cook in the house so the grill is getting a workout. Grilled zucchini and squash with grilled calamari. Calamari is marinated in olive oil, garlic, crushed red pepper, oregano & lemon. chopped tomato and parsley on top.
