Summer Squash Salad

Green. Refreshing. Light.   That’s how I would describe this Summer Squash salad.

This salad is a great segue from summer into fall.  The summer squash reminds us of the sunshine and fun times, while the zucchini and ricotta cheese slowly eases us into the crunching leaves and beautiful oranges and reds.

Ingredients- Serves 2-3
Prep time: 15 minutes

1 zucchini
1 summer squash
3-4 handfuls of arugula
4 scoops of ricotta cheese
Olive oil

Begin by cutting the zucchini and summer squash lengthwise and chop into one inch pieces.

In a large bowl, mix together arugula, zucchini, summer squash, and a few scoops of ricotta.  Since ricotta is so rich, it acts as a yummy dressing.  If you need a little more, dress it up with a little olive oil.

About Humble Foodie

While we both love to eat well, life as AmeriCorps volunteers doesn’t afford us the budget to try every new restaurant and type of cuisine. With many post-graduate expenses and limited financial resources, what’s a foodie to do? The answer is here, at The Humble Foodie. Instead of spending our hard-earned cash paying other people to cook for us, we’re spending as frugally as possible making delicious meals at home.
