"I will say that this was unexpectedly good! I think that the dressing is the key and any vegetable added to the squash will do. I didn't have any radishes on hand so I simply cut some Vidalia onions into the mix and it was great! Thanks to the chef for this healthy alternative to cooking squash to death."

"What a colorful, crunchy and healthy salad this is! Like others I found there's way too much oil. I found it's best served the same day; leftovers next day tended to have limp veggies. Still with less oil it's a great summertime salad."

"This is a great recipe I've made many times. I just chop the veggies however is easiest, which usually means small chunks--it all tastes the same! :-) I will add one important note--you do NOT need 1 full cup of oil! I use 1/4 cup and it is plenty."

"I had to make do without the radishes or zucchini, just young yellow squash, and it was wonderful! I can't wait to try it as written."

"Julienne means to cut the veggies into 1/4 inch wide & 2 inch long matchstick sized pieces. I like the way it looks so elegant, although I'm sure this recipe would be delicious no matter how you cut the veggies. I only used 1/4 cup oil, and I added a tsp of sugar to the dressing. Refreshing and delicious!"
