Chef's Notes

  • This salad is great to use all the squash in the garden during the summer. Adding nuts to salads increases healthy fats, fiber and protein.
  • Liven up your lunch and dinner with this nutrient dense vegetable salad. The healthy fats in the walnuts allow for optimal absorption of the vitamin A found in the summer squash.  A perfect pairing!And while squash may be the main ingredient, don't forget about the nutrient powerhouse, walnuts. They add healthy fats, fiber, and protein and other nutrients to support long term health. Walnuts are actually the only nut that contain a significant amount of plant omega-3 fats, which are important for heart and brain health among other things.
