I was inspired by Amy’s wonderful list of zucchini recipes to create a compilation of squash recipes. I only plant one or two zucchini plants each year, so although I have a lot of zucchini, it is still manageable. However, this year I went wild and planted 3 crook neck squash and 5 yellow straightneck squash (and I think I have a volunteer in my pepper patch). Below is a compilation of recipes that I have found to use up yellow straightneck squash and yellow crookneck squash.
~You can easily grill squash. Cut yellow squash in half, coat the cut side with you favorite marinade, and grill it alongside your steaks.
~You can eat it uncooked. Try adding some to your next salad.
~Summer Squash is a broad term that includes all squash that reach maturity in the summer (instead of fall like pumpkins). Last week, Fireweed recommended an article on how to use up your extra zucchini. I originally overlooked it because when I think of summer squash, I think of the yellow varieties. Whether you include zucchini in your definition of summer squash or limit your definition to the yellow summer squashes, you will find the article to be a great resource.
If you have a favorite Squash recipe, please leave a link or the recipe in the comment section so I can add it to the list.Yum
