2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 large clove garlic, smashed

1 pound small zucchini, cut into 3 by 1/2-inch strips

1 pound small yellow summer squash, cut into 3 by 1/2-inch strips

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 cup quartered vine-ripened grape or cherry tomatoes

8 mint leaves, cut into thin strips


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil and garlic, and saute until the garlic is golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and discard the garlic. Increase the heat to high and add the squash. Saute, tossing frequently until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and mint and cook until warmed, about 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve in a warm bowl.
