Raw Summer Salad

Jump to Recipe

Its bumper crop season and this Raw Summer Salad is the perfect way to use up all those veggies. It's also the perfect thing to pair with my favorite summer time weekned dinner, these delicious grilled ribeyes!

Zucchini, yellow squash, peas, fennel, goat cheese, lemon juice, olive oil and dill… plus a little salt and pepper. Okay so it's almost a raw salad (don't mind the goat cheese) but either way it’s the perfect summer salad. It’s exactly what the doctor ordered after my schnitzel overdose in Germany. Don’t get me wrong, I loooooooove a schnitzel as much as the next person… but after 9 days of delicious fried pork and potatoes, I need a little bit of raw veggies in my life. Plus its super hot here in LA at the moment, and turning on the oven or firing up the stove is almost too much work!

  • 2 large zucchini thinly sliced
  • 2 yellow squash think sliced 
  • ½ fennel bulb thinly sliced

  • Olive oil


  • Combine all the prepped vegetables in a large bowl.
  • Add the cheese, dill and season with salt and pepper.

Select large squash but not TOO large - the larger, the more seeds they have, especially the yellow ones. If there are too many seeds, simple scoop some of them out.
