    • 2 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
    • 1 medium summer squash, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices

    • 1/2 lb fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

      The thyme was what MADE this dressing for me, even though I had to substitute 1 tsp dried for the 1 Tbs fresh (I did use fresh oregano, though). I just made a half-recipe of the salad but a full recipe of the dressing, so I can use it again on another salad. I also substituted fettucini for the linguini and havarti for the mozzarella. I cooked the veggies just until al dente and loved their semi-crunchiness combined with the tang of the dressing--thanks for an attractive, inspiring salad!
