Yankee Gardener's Summer Squash with a Chunky Tomato / Caper Sauce

Serves 6



Chunky Sauce
1 1/2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 shallots, minced
6 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons drained capers
1 1/2 pounds plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped, drained (4 cups)
1 cup cooked corn kernels (about 1 large ear)
1 cup coarsely chopped arugula (leaves only)
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
12 to 14 Kalamata or Greek black olives, pitted, left in small chunks
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

4 small yellow zucchini or summer squash, sliced 1/2 inch thick
4 small green zucchini squash, sliced 1/2 inch thick
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Sauce: In a bowl combine vinegar, lemon juice and shallots. Gradually add oil, whisking until thoroughly blended. Add capers, tomatoes, corn, arugula, basil and olives, tossing gently to combine. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.

Steam squash until just tender (don't overcook!). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Arrange on a shallow platter or bowl. Spoon sauce over top. Serve hot or at room temperature.

This is a wonderful Spanish style dressing that adds pizzazz to steamed squash.

Taste of Gloucester Cook Book The Taste of Gloucester - A Fisherman's Wife Cooks - 8th Edition
"The Taste of Gloucester" cookbook was created by the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives and the Cape Ann League of Women's Voters to share recipes of lesser known species of fish as well as familiar ones. Their cookbook, The Taste of Gloucester has sold over 200,000 copies. The Taste of Gloucester recipes are drawn from tradition and are variations of ethnic specialties for different occasions. The original purpose of the cookbook was the promotion of underutilized fish to help the local fleet diversify. Squid, Atlantic Herring and Shark recipes are scattered among those for more familiar species. Copies of The Taste of Gloucester - 8th Edition, can be ordered through the Yankee Grocery Country Store.
