Were you with me last summer when I was growing the biggest squash on the face of the earth in my small little planter boxes? Do you remember my 1.5-foot zucchini squash…
For those who have grown zucchini, you know that it is not a wonderful idea to allow the squash to get this big because the vegetable becomes seedy, tough and tasteless. Bigger is not better. In my defense, I would leave for work with a 2-inch zucchini on the vine and come home to find it had grown a foot!
Okay, that may be a bit of a stretch (ba-dum-ching), but in essence, my lack of attention-to-garden resulted in monster zucchini and yellow squash, which meant I needed to come up with creative ways of using said vegetables.
Needless to say, I did not grow zucchini this year (or anything for that matter…my green thumb is taking a one-year hiatus). But if I had, roasted summer vegetable quinoa salad would be where it’s at. Annnnd roasted summer vegetable quinoa salad is still where it’s at because it’s daaaang good and full of healthy stuff!
