  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 medium yellow squashes (8 ounces each), halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together lemon juice and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add squash, shallot, and thyme. Toss to combine. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes

Choose yellow squash that is glossy, firm, heavy for its size, and small -- a petite squash boasts fewer seeds and more flavor than a big one.
