I wasn't sure how I would like eating raw squash and zucchini. I followed the recipe exact. The family absolutely loved it...great success. When the zucchinis come in here shortly, this will be a summer staple for us. Glad I came across this recipe. Thank you for publishing.

This squash salad was great! Mine did not get soggy and stayed crunchy even after a second day in the refrigerator. It does make a lot, so it is a good side dish to bring to a family function.

Excellent. Would be great with cucumbers too. Still crispy the next day.

I made this for a side at a BBQ this past weekend, and it was a big hit - even among non-veggie lovers. It was very refreshing and light. I was originally planning to maybe steam the squash, but sliced it thin, left it raw, and it was perfect. Very colorful and pretty dish too.

A new family favorite! Easy to prepare, and tastes great. I'll be using the dressing on other salads as well.
