  1. Put shredded red cabbage in the bottom of a microwave-safe container and top with summer squash. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes. (See notes for the steaming option.)
  2. Toss vegetables with Italian dressing, taste, and adjust seasonings. Serve warm or chill and serve cold. Keeps refrigerated for five days.
Recipe Notes
  • If you don’t have access to a microwave or if you’d rather not use one, steam the vegetables in a covered pot with a steamer basket and a little water.¬† Bring the water to a boil and then steam for 5 minutes. Drain before adding dressing.
  • You could use a vinaigrette instead of Italian dressing, but the herbs in the Italian dressing add extra zest to this simple side dish. Newman’s Own Tuscan Italian is a good organic choice. Just check the label to make sure it doesn’t have Parmesan, Romano, or other cheese.
  • You could use green zucchini for the same flavor but without the high-contrast color pop.
