With the Honey out of town and the weather as hot as all get out, I’ve been making tons of fresh, vegetarian salads. It’s not that he disapproves of us eating vegetarian – we do several times a week – or even eating lots of fresh vegetables for that matter, but he most certainly is a happy carnivore and I think sees a big, vegetable-filled salad as simply the base for some type of grilled meat.
When it’s just me at home, I find myself gravitating toward more vegetable-centric meals, like this grilled summer squash salad. I grilled up some zucchini and yellow squash from this week’s CSA farm basket and tossed it with sweet grape tomatoes, fresh herbs and Israeli pearl couscous for a super easy and refreshing salad that also creates great leftovers. This could easily make a light meal for two, or for meat-lovers, a flavorful, veggie-packed side dish.
