Recipe by GoKittenGo

Fast, easy, light, and good! I love this during the summer. The preparation time is about how long it takes me; it really depends upon how fast you can chop and whisk. :)

Great recipe for the garden squash. We loved this one ! The only changes I made were using one small onion from our garden in place of the shallots. I also used 2 lemons and one lime and dried dill. It had a wonderful fresh flavor and will be a frequent treat around here. Thanks for sharing!
