Before we left the US, zucchini was just coming into season. My mom’s garden was overflowing with zucchini and she had no idea what she was going to do with all of them. I remember the end of every summer producing more of this vegetable than we knew what to do with.  Neighbors would share them by the bag-full. I love zucchini because they have a light flavor and can be combined with sweet or savory flavors. Just about any dish you can imagine can incorporate zucchini either as the centerpiece or as an added vitamin booster (shhh don’t tell the kids!) Chances are you’ve got the same, delicious, situation as my mom. Here are more than 60 recipe ideas to use up all of your zucchini and yellow squash!
