No Waste Summer Food Series: Creative Ways to Enjoy Summer Squash and Zucchini

Tis the season for an abundance of locally and seasonally grown vegetables and fruits. Right about now, zucchini and summer squash are probably coming out of your ears. Your neighbors may have put some on your porch, it may be in a box labeled "FREE" at a small business you frequent or you're purchasing it for quarters at your local Farmer's Market. When it's so accessible and at it's peak, it's easy to take it for granted.

Here's a compilation of some fun recipes that can help you make the most of your zucchini and squash:
