This super sweet and crunchy fresh slaw is studded with sweet corn kernels as well as the traditional cabbage and carrot combination. Another update-- a lightened up dressing made with yogurt instead of mayonnaise.
Jar Salads are an excellent (and cool!) way to prepare a healthy lunch for work or school. The trick is in the layering-- if you're preparing more than a few days ahead, save the dressing to be put on in the morning before you leave the house. This recipe fills a quart sized glass, which is enough for an entrée sized salad or a light lunch for two.
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.
