What a great way to use up all that summer squash! You can almost taste the sunshine in this quick, colorful vegetable dish and the foil packets make for carefree cleanup. —Betty Washburn, Reno, Nevada
These cucumber slices make a cool summer side dish dressed in a light, tangy vinegar and oil mixture seasoned with herbs. The refreshing salad is always a hit when served with cold sandwiches or grilled meat.

"This fast, fresh-tasting side dish comes very close to a delicious treatment for pasta I enjoyed while in Italy," relates Dorothy Roche from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. "You can also serve it with a green salad and toasted garlic bread for a light meal."
I combined two recipes to create this side with broccoli and pasta. The splash of lemon adds nice flavor. Instead of toasted almonds, you could also sprinkle servings with grated Parmesan cheese. —Beth Dauenhauer, Pueblo, CO
