Fix a low-calorie, high-fiber dish for yourself with this vegetable salad recipe. Simple, healthy, and fresh, this vegetable salad is made with delicious summer squash and sweet cherry tomatoes.
We love using summer squash because the vegetable tends to be a good source of vitamins A, C, and B6, magnesium, folate, riboflavin, phosphorus, and potassium. There are a lot of essential nutrients packed into one powerful veggie.
The squash is sautéed with garlic and tomatoes in a little bit of olive oil then dressed with fresh basil, making this the quintessential summer dish. Because this vegetable salad recipe doesn’t contain a lot of spices, it’s important to use high quality, organic produce for the best flavor.
Feel free to mix in extra ingredients like goat cheese and/or a handful of penne pasta to make this a more filling salad. You can also sprinkle a pinch of parmesan at the end for a satisfying garnish.
