Yellow Squash Lunch.

So much squash, tomatoes, onions, and basil coming out of the garden.  This is my attempt at making a small dent in our bounty !  To make this meal a little heartier, you could add some pre-cooked chicken or black beans.

Yellow Squash Lunch

1 medium yellow squash, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 small onion (mine was a Walla Walla Sweet)
2 large basil leaves, sliced thinly
1 Tbsp butter
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Melt butter over medium-high heat.  Add onions and sautee until they are translucent and begin to caramelize.

Add squash, salt, and pepper to pan, and cook for 2-3 minutes. I like my squash “al-dente”, so it doesn’t take long. Add the tomatoes and basil at the very end.

Super-delish, Super Easy !

Caprese Salad.

This is one of my late summer go-to sides.  Fresh tomato and basil from the garden will amplify the flavor.   Slice the tomatoes, add fresh mozarella medallions, drizzle with olive oil.  Add thinly sliced basil.  Sprinkle with Kosher salt and cracked black pepper.

Prep = 3 minutes !

I had this lunch three times this week.  It’s very quick (5 minutes to prep/cook), satisfying, and held me from 11:30 am to about 6:30 pm — No need for a mid-afternoon snack to tide me over to dinner with this one…

Super Easy Shrimp Salad

20 medium shrimp (mine were pre cooked/frozen)
1/2 an avocado, sliced
1 medium tomato, diced large
1 Tbsp. butter
Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste

Defrost the shrimp in the microwave for about 45 seconds.  Meanwhile melt the butter over medium-high heat.

Drain off water from shrimp and sautee for about 3 minutes (adding salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste).

Shrimp are ready once the butter forms a nice crust on them.  Serve over tomato and avocado.
