Notes about this recipe

  • sosayi on September 05, 2017

    I really enjoyed this salad. I'm not normally much of a raw summer squash fan, but the marinating, dressing and plenitude of fresh herbs really transformed them into something wonderful. I did make a few changes, some based on necessity and some on taste. I forgot to press the squash early enough (12-24 hours), and regret that I didn't do it long enough (only 2-3 hours). The dressing became more watery than I would like after sitting for a while because of this. I also cut the amount of oil in half for the dressing. I prefer things on the more vinegary side, so this worked perfectly for me. I'd definitely suggesting tasting the dressing as you whisk the oil in, to see where you want to stop, as the oil ratio seems fairly high. On balance, I would make this again without hesitation, but definitely would take the time to press the squash for the full 24 hours. Oh, and I also cut back a little on salt and added some feta. I could go either way next time on that.
