Sometimes for me the hardest part of planning a meal is deciding on a side dish. This Skillet Squash is one I’ve come back to again and again.
It’s made with Yellow Squash which is available in abundance at the produce stand just up the road from our house from around Memorial Day until the beginning of fall.
Another thing I love about side dish is that it’s prepared in a cast iron skillet. I think everything tastes better when it’s cooked in cast iron. Maybe it’s because I was raised in the South or just my imagination.
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet don’t worry you can use whatever you have. Just make sure it’s heated evenly before you put in the squash and onions.
- 2-4 yellow squash
- 1 medium red onion
- ¼ cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
Slice squash into ¼ inch pieces
Slice red onion into narrow pieces
In a large bowl combine ingredients until coated with EVOO evenly
Pour into warm skillet and cook until squash and onion are soft and semi-transparent
