Squash Salad Recipe: This Vegan Zephyr Squash Ribbons With Almond Salsa Verde Recipe Is Almost Too Pretty to Eat by Mee McCormick
The beauty of a summer garden is that every week we welcome an old friend we’ve not seen since the previous summer to the table. Zephyr squash is beautiful because it looks as if someone tie-dyed the bottom green and the top yellow. It’s mild and delicious. You can use any summer squash or zucchini in this easy squash salad recipe. Summer squashes have a lot of water in them, which aids digestion. I also rotate the nuts that I use in this recipe.

Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1/2 cup finely chopped toasted blanched almonds (if nut free, replace with pumpkin seeds)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more (to taste)
- 1 1/4 pounds summer squash or green zucchini, trimmed and cut in half crosswise

Here’s how to make it:
- To make the salsa verde, combine the almonds, cilantro, parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, capers, shallots, garlic and sea salt. Toss until well combined.
- Shave the squash into ribbons using a vegetable peeler. Transfer to a serving bowl and toss with the salsa verde. Season with sea salt and black pepper, to taste. Drizzle with some extra-virgin olive oil. Makes 6 servings.
