Summer is here, so let's take advantage of it! You don't always have to cook your summer squash, especially when the last thing you want to do is turn on a stove. This fast and easy recipe makes raw zucchini the star. The key is to pump up the vegetable’s subtle flavor with fragrant mint, crunchy pomegranate seeds and a creamy and bright dressing.



  1. Put the yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, chile, half of the mint and 2 tablespoons of water in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and combine with a spoon. Add the zucchini and toss to coat.
  2. Top with the remaining mint, pomegranate seeds and pistachios. Drizzle with olive oil and pomegranate molasses and serve.
