Patty Pan squash is one of my favorites. It’s very flavorful, easy to cook with, and we get a ton of them come Summer. This recipe takes advantage of its bowl-like shape, and the stuffing can be made with whatever you have on hand or have a tasting for. You also can use Zucchini instead of Patty Pan, just follow the same recipe and make long Zucchini Boats (cut in half and scoop out most of the flesh from the middle), steam, and stuff.
The trick to a tasty, not bitter, Kale Salad is all in the dressing and the variety of kale used. Lacinato, or Dino Kale (long flat emerald green leaves) make great salads, but they soak up a lot of dressing so use it sparingly and taste check.
