Summer Squash Salad

Click for Full Size

Kara and I hit the farmers market this weekend and the resulting bounty of squash, onions, and tomatoes led to a delicious salad.  Recipe after the break.

4 large squash (2 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, 1 yellow zucchini maybe?), chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped (you could use a whole one and omit the yellow onion)
1 tbsp fresh minced rosemary
1tbsp olive oil

Sweat the onion in the oil
Turn up the heat and cook the squash moving rapidly
Add rosemary towards the end

Mixed greens
Tomatoes (ours were cool heirloom ones from the farmers market)
Chopped Walnuts (not pictured, but added later to great effect - pine nuts would be good too)
Slices of parmesan cheese


Homemade lemon vinaigrette

1/2 cup olive oil (about half and half good stuff and regular flavorless)
1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
1tbsp spicy brown mustard
1 shallot
fresh ground pepper

Combine everything but the shallot in a blender and let it go for 30 seconds.
Add shallot and pulse 'til it's chopped in.
