Expert Tips

  • Bottled lemon juice is readily available and perfect to keep on hand, but for this simple recipe, grab a few fresh lemons from the grocery store. The fresh juice flavors the vegetables wonderfully, and you’ll have enough left to make fresh lemonade.
  • If your zucchini harvest is bountiful, feel free to use one instead of the yellow squash. You’ll need about 1 1/2 cups of 1/4-inch slices.
