Squash Slaw

Continuing with my quest to add more vegetable servings to my day, I ran across this recipe that had been scribbled on a scrap of a paper towel.  I suspect I found this in a magazine while sitting in a waiting room somewhere waiting, patiently, or maybe not too patiently, for an appointment of some kind or another.

There is a good bit of grating involved but other than that, it goes together fairly quickly.  The result is not only colorful but quite refreshing and delicious.

Squash Slaw
The green onions were camera-shy

2 large or 3 medium yellow squash
2 large or 3 medium zucchini
3 medium carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 green onions, finely chopped

Peel and grate the squash and zucchini. Squeeze out excess water using paper towels or a clean cloth and place in a medium bowl.  Peel and grate carrots and add to squash mixture.  Stir in the diced red bell pepper and green onions. 


1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup Stevia (it called for sugar)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Whisk all ingredients together until well blended.  Pour over vegetable mixture.

Cover and chill at least one hour before serving.
