Summer squash are named so because they cannot be store for long periods (until winter) unlike winter squash. Look for firm, unblemished, glossy skin; small to medium-sized, fairly heavy relative to size. Stored in the refrigerator, they should keep for a week. Here are a few recipes we think are worth trying this season:
