Veggie Type: Squash
Peak months: June-September
Uses: While zucchini and cucumber might look similar, they are prepared differently, so make sure you know which vegetable you have. Zucchinis are a type of squash, and you can treat them as you would any other summer squash. For a quick meal, peel, slice, and sauté zucchini with (or without) other summer vegetables for a tasty mixture that you can add to pasta, couscous, or rice.
