We’re eating a shaved zucchini, yellow squash, kumquat and shallot salad dressed in an orange, lime & cumin vinaigrette. The cool, crisp shaved squash easily take on the refreshing flavors of the vinaigrette and the kumquats pull it all together with their bright citrusy flavor.
We thought this salad was so good that it deserved a post all of its own even if we did eat it with the succulent brined pork chops featured in the last post. I’m pretty sure that once the heat of the summer sinks and we’re too hot to cook, we’ll be eating a lot of this type of salad! What’s your favorite food to beat the heat?
