Author Notes: Growing summer squash I am always challenging myself to develop interesting recipes using this bountiful summer vegetable. Using small young squash I grate them for salads and have just discovered thin slices work very nicely raw as well, picking up flavors of vinaigrettes. - REC —REC
Food52 Review: Wow, what a riot of big flavors! Currants, radicchio, lemon, parsley, capers and, yes, zucchini. This is no shy side dish; it demands a lot of attention. I love salads like this -- ones that surprise with different flavor combinations in every bite. Be sure to use a high quality olive oil - it's another starring flavor in the salad. - vrunka —The Editors
