Here's a warm-weather-friendly trick for dressing up your farmers market haul: rather than roast them — and crank up the heat in your kitchen — shave firm vegetables like Summer squash, cucumbers, and carrots into wispy ribbons for a refreshing, eye-catching salad. While it looks impressive, it comes together easily with the aid of a mandoline or a sharp vegetable peeler. Watch the video to see how it's done, and then get the recipe.
