Season of the Summer Squash!

Green and yellow summer squash

Summer squash season is upon us, and if you have even one of these prolific plants in your garden, you're likely finding yourself inundated with these yellow and green veggies. The good news is that summer squash is super versatile, and super good for you. With a high dietary fiber and water content, it aids digestion and is rich in Manganese, Vitamin C, and Omega-3 fatty acids.

You can shred it up and hide it in just about anything to make a dish (particularly a baked good) more moist and to increase nutritional value. And, of course, to make a dent in your zucchini supply. Below are three recipes to use up summer squash throughout the day. Enjoy!
