I picked up a copy of Bon Appetite Magazine last week in need of some inspiration for summer and I am so glad I did. I was perusing it yesterday in the park and found this recipe for Shaved Summer Squash Salad and I immediately headed for the store to pick up the simple ingredients. I made it today and let me tell you it is the perfect salad for a hot summer day.

Roast almonds and coarsely crush. Meanwhile, trim the ends off summer squash. Using a vegetable peeler, thinly slice the squash lengthwise into strips and transfer to a large bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together extra-virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic clove, and kosher salt to taste. Pour dressing over squash. Let stand for a few minutes, then add a few handfuls of baby arugula. Shave a little Pecorino over the squash and toss. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Garnish with the crushed almonds.
