Number of Servings: 4


    1 clove Garlic, minced
    1 tsp grated lemon zest plus 1 tbsp lemon juice
    4 (6-8 oz) yellow squash or zucchini (or combine both), trimmed
    2 tbsp plus 1 tsp Olive Oil
    1 tsp Salt
    1 tsp Pepper, black
    1 1/2 tbsp Parsley, chopped


Combine garlic and lemon juice in large bowl and set aside for at least 10 minutes. Using vegetable peeler, shave each squash lengthwise into ribbons: shave off three ribbons from one side, then turn squash 90° and shave off three more ribbons. Continue to turn and shave ribbons until you reach seeds; discard core.

Whisk 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and lemon zest into garlic/lemon juice mixture.

Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in 12 inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat until just smoking. Add squash and cook, tossing occasionally with tongs, until squash is softened and is translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer squash to bowl with dressing, add parsley, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately.
