Zucchini, yellow squash and tomatoes are all available year-round at your local Food Lion, but did you know that their peak season is actually in the summer months? That means that during this time of year they’re extra delicious. Bring these three produce items together in this dressed side dish with feta cheese and parsley. Pair with grilled chicken, fish or even steak for a complete meal.

Directions

  1. Slice the zucchinis and yellow squash in half lengthwise. Slice each half into 1/4-inch-thick half-moons.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the zucchini and yellow squash and sauté 3-4 minutes until just tender and cooked through. Season with the salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium serving bowl.
  3. Add the tomatoes, crumbled feta and parsley to the squash.
  4. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and minced garlic in a small bowl. Season with the salt and pepper. Pour over the vegetables and toss to combine.

Recipe Tip: To make ahead, prepare the zucchini, squash and dressing, cover and refrigerate. When ready to serve, toss the remaining ingredients with the dressing to combine.
