  • 45 small yellow summer squash or green zucchini cut into small, flat pieces
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cups tightly packed arugula (or 2 big handfuls)
  • 1 medium avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
  • 1 small bell pepper (any color), diced
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped
  • Dressing:
  • juice of 3 limes
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried chives
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 black pepper


  1. You can make the squash on the grill or in the oven.
  2. For the grill: toss the squash with 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp salt, and 3/4 tsp pepper. Put on kabob skewers and grill for about 10 minutes over medium heat, turning every 2-3 minutes or until slightly cooked through. Remove from grill and allow to cool.
  3. For the oven: preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the squash with 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp salt, and 3/4 tsp pepper. Roast the squash on a rimmed baking sheet for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool.
  4. Add the tomatoes, arugula, avocado, bell pepper, and green onion to a large bowl. Add the squash once cool.
  5. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, smoked paprika, chives, salt and pepper.
  6. Pour the dressing over the salad and stir to combine.
  7. Serve with your favorite protein!
