I always like to bring this healthy option to parties and potlucks, and people seem to really appreciate that. No oil is necessary for this salad: the lemon juice combines with the feta to lightly coat the bright, fresh ingredients. —Camille Parker, Chicago, Illinois

"Excellent flavors. Halved the recipe and served as an entree for three. Thought there would be a lot leftover but we polished it off in one meal, served with a hearty bread."

"Do you prepare this without cooking the squash? The flavor together sound delicious."
