SHAVED SUMMER SQUASH

July 2, 2020

 

Ingredients
For the vinaigrette:
Zest and juice of 2 lemons
4 tablespoons Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup Lemon Olive Oil

 

For the squash:
6-8 small summer squash
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
4 ounces pecorino cheese, shaved with a vegetable peeler
2/3 cup almonds
1 bunch mint, leaves picked, chiffonade
3 tablespoons minced chives
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

 

Directions
Make the vinaigrette: In a small bowl, combine zest, juice, Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar and garlic, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Let stand for 10 minutes to mellow rawness of garlic. Whisk in Lemon Olive Oil.

 

Make the squash: With a mandolin or very sharp knife, slice squash thinly. Place slices into colander set over another bowl and season with salt. Let stand for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until pliable. Shake moisture from squash over sink. Place into a clean bowl and dress with vinaigrette.
Arrange squash slices in an overlapping pattern in a single layer on a serving platter. Season with pepper and scatter with tomatoes, pecorino, almonds, mint, and chives. Drizzle the platter with additional vinaigrette.
