    HokiesMom's Note:

    From Real Simple Magazine June 2008. This is such a refreshing and light summer salad. If you find the lemon too strong just reduce the amount to your tastes.

      Delicious!! And so simple. I have a spiralizer, so the ribbons were easy. I tried the original recipe first, then tried cutting the cheese (& used pecorino romano) and olive oil in 1/2 to reduce the fat, and doubled the lemon - still delicious. It is important to serve immediately if you want the squash to stay crisp. My husband loved it, too & he's not a zucchini fan. This will be a staple summer dish for us. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      I used baby patty pan squash and did not have to worry about the seeds. I also had to use lime instead of lemon. This is a nice refreshing light salad, and a great way to use garden bounty. Thanks for posting this recipe.

      Light and lemony. I didn't think the lemon was overpowering at all. I used the 2 tbsp and I actually could have used more. The "ribbons" in both green ad yellow looked very pretty. I think I will add minced garlic and/or some fresh parsley next time to bring out more flavor. Thanx for sharing!
