Tri-Color Ribbon Salad




Ribbon Salad

I know most of you are breaking into the fall ingredients but I as mentioned in my last post - I'm squeezing out the last bit of summer.  I do love fresh produce and especially the colors of this simple salad.  Summer squashes are still in abundance at the Farmer's Market as well as carrots.

A nice light dressing of olive oil and lemon juice completes the making of this dish.

Tri-Color Ribbon Salad

by Deb Attinella
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (2-4 servings)
    Veggies
    • one medium yellow summer squash
    • one medium zucchini
    • two carrots
    Dressing
    • 4 T olive oil
    • 2 T fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
    • S&P to taste
    Instructions
    Veggies
    1. Using a mandoline on the smallest setting, slice the summer squash and zucchini lengthwise. The carrot didn't do well on a mandoline so I used a vegetable peeler (and if you don't have a mandoline use a peeler for everything)
    Dressing
    1. Combine all dressing ingredients and pour over veggies.
    2. Lightly toss and serve
