I like my summer squash braised with some sweet onion and a palmful of brown sugar. It is by far my favorite summer vegetable dish, and I ate an entire potful by myself a few days ago.
Here's the recipe: Squash and Onions with Brown Sugarright here), but really tiny, tender ones can also be grated raw into a salad- like this Shredded Zucchini and Summer Squash Salad.
A couple of other recipes that might give you a new take on a familiar vegetable:
• Smothered Yellow Squash with Basil, from Gourmet
• Squash Casserole, from Food Network (admittedly less healthy, but a Southern staple that's a delicious indulgence if you've never had it)
