Blue Ribbon Recipe

A wonderfully quick and easy summer side dish. The summer squash is tender. We loved the sweet carrots and slightly caramelized onions. Balsamic vinegar adds a slight tang to the dish. A delicious way to enjoy summer squash.

How To Make quick sauteed summer squash

  • Squash and onion sliced.
    Slice yellow squash and onion in 1/2, slice, and halve.
  • Carrots sliced thin.
    Use a mandolin and slice the carrots into thin slices.
  • Veggies and spices tossed together.
    Mix all veggies together and add spices.
  • Heating oil.
    Heat olive oil in a skillet (I use a copper wok on a gas range).
  • Cooking veggies in the hot oil.
    When very hot, add veggie mixture and pan fry until brown but not soft.
  • Balsamic vinegar and remaining spices added to summer squash.
    Add balsamic vinegar and keep tossing until tender but not mushy. Add salt, garlic powder, and pepper until the desired flavor.
