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.

Cut the recipe down so that it makes just enough for yourself.
