Summer squash is delicious raw when it's shaved and marinated with a bit of salt. Add salty prosciutto and you have the perfect side dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Shave the zucchini and squash into thin strips using a vegetable peeler. Discard seeds. Place zucchini and squash in a medium bowl, and toss with salt.

Step 2

Combine mint and next 4 ingredients (through pepper) in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Pour over zucchini and squash; toss.

Step 3

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto; saute for 2 minutes or until crisp.

Step 4

Place 3/4 cup salad on each of 4 plates. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon cheese; sprinkle evenly with prosciutto.

I couldn't figure out how to slice the squash as shown in the photo. Mine looked blah in comparison. Any comments? Other than that, those who tasted it at the get-together I brought it to, liked it very much. I'm not a big fan of feta really so I'm not sure. One friend said it was an explosion of flavors.

I actually made this without the mint and tossed it together with some pasta. It was very, very good. With the squash and lemon - a great summer dish. Will definitely make again.

Loved this salad! I couldn't get enough of it. I substituted goat cheese for the feta. I think the prosciutto is good but not a requirement to make this salad taste great. Enjoy!

I was really looking forward to this salad but both my husband and I thought it was just awful. Weird tasting, too minty, started off fresh but quickly turned to a very bitter, bad taste in the mouth. We tried to correct it to no avail. Would not make this again. Very disappointed.
