A Quick Summer Salad with Zucchini Squash

Regardless of location, there is probably nothing I like more than visiting a farmer’s market in the summer. However, if I were honest the daily Provencal marchés and Italian mercatos have a certain amount of charm that our local market lacks. However, with travel restrictions this year, I have been a regular at the nearby market and on my last visit, there was fresh zucchini squash, the inspiration for this quick summer salad.
