Very easy, very tasty. Good even for those who are a little afraid of squash. I made this up when we "inherited" tons of squash from a friend who gardens.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 large summer squash
  • 1 tablespoon dill
  • 1 tablespoon light margarine (can use butter instead)
  • 1 dash garlic salt


  1. Slice the squash into thin slices (1/4 to 1/2 inch thick). If it is a very large squash, you can cut these into halves or quarters to avoid serving large disks.
  2. Heat a sauté pan over medium-high heat; spray with cooking spray.
  3. Add the squash and sauté several minutes or until tender-crisp (overcooking will produce squishier squash--when it starts looking soft, stop!)
  4. Toss with margarine and dill in the pan, stirring until evenly coated, and cook for another minute or so.

We made this with zucchini and it was delightful. The dill really gave it a crisp flavor! Though instead of using butter, I simply sprayed the squash with olive oil. Made for PAC Spring 2010 :)

This is so simple, but so good! I never made zucchini with dill but for sure will make that again often! As I was run out of margarine and can't eat butter, I used some olive oil for me and butter for DH. Thanks for a quick, tasty and healthy recipe! Made for PAC fall 2009.
