Summer Squash Salad with Tomatoes and Fresh Herbs

Submitted by: The Market Manager :)

1/3 c extra virgin olive oil
3 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp coarse sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp dried and crushed red pepper
2 lbs zucchini, yellow squash, or both
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1-2 ears of fresh corn, kernels removed
1/2 c fresh herbs from the garden, basil, chives, parsley, or my favourite cilantro.

For the dressing, mix together the lemon juice, salt, and black and red peppers together in a bowl. Whisk in the olive oil until blended. Set aside. Cut the zucchini (and/or squash) in half crosswise and then lengthwise so you have four quarters.  Then slice the quartered zucchini crosswise into ¼ inch pieces. Mix together the zucchini, tomatoes, corn, and dressing. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. Once ready to serve, mix in the fresh herbs. Taste and adjust accordingly with a little salt and pepper or additional herbs. Enjoy!!!
