Shaved Summer Squash + Tomato Salad

Shaved Summer Squash + Tomato Salad

Serves 4


1 garlic clove, finely grated

¼ cup red wine vinegar

¾ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

⅓ cup olive oil, and 2 tablespoons

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

1 pound mixed summer squash

4 ounces of fresh mozzarella, torn

Basil leaves, chives, dill, to garnish

Flaky salt for finishing


In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, red wine vinegar, red pepper, ⅓ cup olive oil and 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Taste, and adjust. Adding more salt or squeeze of lemon juice.

In a medium bowl, toss together halved tomatoes with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a pinch of salt, set aside. Thinly slice squash using a very sharp knife, or preferably a mandoline.

Place squash onto serving plate, layering with tomatoes over top and all of its juices. Drizzle the dressing over and allow to sit for 5 minutes so the squash can absorb some of the dressing. Then top with freshly torn mozzarella, herbs and flaky salt.
