    1. 1
      Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and cook 5 minutes, or until the onion is slightly tender. Stir in the zucchini, squash and saute just until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Mix in the tomatoes and raise the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring often, until the zucchini and squash are tender but not mushy and the juices have evaporated. Sprinkle with Queso Fresco crumbles over zucchini/squash at a low simmer. Cover and cook the cheese until just tender, about a few minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro to serve.

      FANTASTIC! What a great mix. I used olive oil instead of butter, and added some spice (Cayenne pepper and a bit of salt). My husband wont eat cheese, so I made his without, and it was still great. I didn't have a fresh tomato when first making this, so I used canned diced tomatoes with jalepenos. Wow. It gives a great kick (drain well). This can easily serve as a side dish, or a great topping for some whole wheat pasta. Reheats well too -- great for spicing up some leftover chicken and/or rice. Thanks for a healthy, and beautiful dish.

      I'm a big fan of summer squash and this was heavenly! I made this just as written, adding only a bit of salt. Very tasty and colorful. i just loved the queso fresco and cilantro topping. Thanx for an awesome new way to use summer squash!

      Used roma tomatoes for this recipe & took the time to hunt down some queso! Such an easy recipe, & the salad is not only tasty but eye-appealing, as well! Delivered it to a neighbor after doing my usual taste test, 7 since others almost always ask for the recipe, I had a copy in my hand for her! Thanks for sharing your great recipe!
