“What did a neighbor leave a large over sized zucchini on your porch? What to do with it? This is a great way to savor the summer squash. Just be sure to remove all the seed and soft white center. This recipe is spicy with an Asian touch. Wonderful on Grilled salmon burgers. Or place some in your next sushi rolls. This is a take off of my Sweet and Spicy Garden Relish/ Chow-Chow. Enjoy!”
