Summer Squash Salad with Pine Nuts & Avocado

Summer Squash Salad with Pine Nuts & Avocado  

Serves 4


With Summer in full-swing, we want to use up all of the delicious green and yellow squashes. This recipe combines them with healthy fats from pine nuts, olive oil, feta cheese and avocado.


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 0 minutes 


Ingredients:

¼ cup pine nuts

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

1 medium avocado, peeled & diced

1.5 pounds of summer squash (green & yellow), thinly sliced 

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced

½ whole scallion, minced 


Instructions:


Preheat the oven to 350 F (178 C).


Spread pine nuts on a baking tray in an even layer. Toast in the oven until golden brown, or about 2-3 minutes, being careful to check on them so that they do not burn. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.


Add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl and gently toss together until well-combined. Let sit and marinate for about 10 minutes before serving.


Serve between 4, storing any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. 


Enjoy!
