My gal pals and I love going to our neighborhood farmers' market and I have a special fondness for the lovely organic produce at Rattle's Garden. It is beautiful and all nestled in between gorgeous bouquets of fresh flowers. So pretty...everything looks luscious. The green beans (now history) were a taste trip, so velvety and tender. Now the palate pleasers are squashes of all kinds, the first tomatoes and lots of other de-lish early summer veggies. Seriously, even their business card looks good enough to eat!
Tara's Summer Squash
Tara wrote in an email that she has two favorite ways to prepare her beautiful squash. I am especially fond of her patty pan varieties! Look how pretty they are front and center in the above picture.
The first way is just to slice and sauté with a little garlic and olive oil in a skillet until done. The second way is to slice into 3/8 inch strips, brush with olive oil, season with a little sea salt and pepper and grill until those lovely grill marks appear and the squash is tender. Of course, squash lends itself to lots of tasty seasonings and so experiment with the fresh herbs that are also in the markets!
