Shaved Carrot and Squash Salad

This is a simple yet elegant salad that makes a great side dish. The long thin strips are made with a vegetable peeler and make the salad easy to eat. Even kids will enjoy this salad with the fun long strips...

2 small summer squash
3 carrots
2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Parsley, chopped

Trim the ends off summer squash and carrots. Using a vegetable peeler, thinly slice the squash and carrots lengthwise into strips and transfer to a large bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk together extra-virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice and minced garlic. Pour dressing over squash and carrot mixture. Let stand for a few minutes and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Garnish with chopped parsley.
