My first year of college I waited tables in a small family owned restaurant. This was one of my favorite things offered on the salad bar. I was lucky enough to get the family recipe. I have never made it, but I sure ate a lot of it. The recipe says it makes 2 quarts, but that sure does not sound right to me unless those veggies shrivel up a lot! Update: I have now made this a couple of times and it is just as good as I remember! My family and friends love it! I found that one average squash is about a cup, so it takes approximately 8 squash per batch.
