    This is a simple salad, a great way to use zucchini and yellow squash that is always found in your garden or in your fridge.

    The unusual, thin-cut ribbons can easily absorb the simple vinaigrette. The goat cheese, on the other hand, adds an exciting saltiness and tang.

    The perfectly cut zucchini slices are oddly satisfying and hunger-inducing. This meal can be served at a dinner date or friends gathering.
