citrus squash salad

Are you looking for a different way to serve garden squash? This salad is bright, tart, and pretty. I used my zoodle cutter and roughly cut the shreds in 2-3 inch pieces, but very thin ribbons would work just as well. The original recipe called for mint, but I used parsley. Kalamata olives, thin slices of purple onion could be added as well.
