My favorite winter salad made an appearance on the blog, so it only felt right to share one of my favorite summer salads with you; Roasted Balsamic Summer Squash Salad.
Side note, how the heck is July almost over? Holy moly.
If you’ve never roasted your summer vegetables (almost any vegetable, really) before serving them, you’re missing out and I can’t wait for you to discover the delicious flavors coming your way. If you’re a roasting machine like I am, you know this summer salad is legit.
During this season we have so many fresh vegetables growing and being harvested. Honestly, to me, this is one of the only redeeming qualities of the muggy summers of the south. After about 2.5 trips to the pool, one beach trip, and several very sweaty shifts in a flight suit…I’ll take a fall breeze, please.
Feel free to be creative and change up what you roast and use in this recipe. Bonus points if it’s even better and you let me know. I used what I had on hand; heirloom tomatoes from Sanders Ridge, squash and zucchini from Shore Farms Organics, and some red onions from FarmHaven Farm. Pearl Couscous is my personal favorite for its hearty flavor and chewy texture, but I’m almost certain that any small pasta would be quite appropriate.Print
