9. Spring Root and Watercress Salad
This is a colorful and crunchy dish made with a combination of several superfoods and gorgeous root veggies not only loaded with color, but more vitamins and minerals than you can shake a potato at. Feel free to experiment with whatever local tubers are in season. If you’re avoiding wheat, rainbow quinoa is a wonderful substitute.
10. Summer Squash Ribbons with Cherry Tomatoes and Mint/Basil Pesto
This recipe uses squash ribbons instead of the regular squash noodles. The ribbons are pretty when cooked and don’t require a long cooking time. The dish comes out beautiful when basil and cherry tomatoes are added.

12. Summer Squash Ribbons With Lemon and Parmesan
Easy prep, few ingredients, simple and fresh flavor. Enough said!
13. Carrot, Zucchini, Squash Ribbons
Paula Deen is synonymous with butter, a guilty pleasure of ours. (And not so guilty after all when using unsalted, grass-fed Irish butter, for instance.) A simple combination of garlic, parsley, salt and pepper is really all you need to make the best of an abundant squash season.
14. Salt and Vinegar Zucchini Chips
Are you looking for healthy, yummy chips? This salt and vinegar recipe might just be what you need. It’s very easy to prepare and contains only 40 calories per serving. Healthy, delicious and guiltlessly habit-forming!
15. Potato Shingled Salmon
Salmon is loaded with brain-boosting fats and Omega-3s. Potato shingles keep moisture in, absorbing flavor and crisping up beautifully. Get the browning without breading the fish.
16. Grilled Panzanella Salad
Smoky grilled veggies give this salad a rich, hearty feel while still being light fare.
17. Layered Apple Crisp with Granola Topping
We wouldn’t leave you hanging without dessert! This layered apple crisp with a crunchy granola topping is a perfect companion to single ingredient banana “ice-cream.” Just freeze bananas, blend, freeze again, scoop.
18. Cauliflower Steaks with Ginger, Turmeric, and Cumin
Cauliflower “steaks” are surprisingly sturdy, juicy and hearty. Ginger, turmeric and cumin provide anti-inflammatory qualities, not to mention earthy taste and lovely color to this dish.
19. Root Vegetable Chips
Any way you slice ’em (say, with a mandoline…), these are better for you than a bag of potato chips. Experiment with seasonings all you like–lemon pepper? Smoked paprika and sea salt? Salt and vinegar? Parmesan and dill? The options are limitless.
20. Paleo Onion Ring Buns
Gluten-free and missing burger buns? You’ll wonder why the gourmet burger craze hasn’t discovered these yet.
21. Zucchini Puff Patry Appetizers
A party in a muffin tin! Surprisingly creamy, beautiful and better than a boring old basket of bread. Try these in a mini muffin tin for cuteness overload.
22. Zucchinioli: Zucchini Ravioli with Spinach Ricotta Filling
Missing pasta? This dish is ravioli packets without the noodles. Inspires experimentation with different fillings…we’re thinking pumpkin-mushroom…mmm…
23. Chipotle Shrimp Jicama Tacos with Pineapple Salsa
Teeny tacos using crisp jicama for shells – a good thin cut will keep them from breaking.
24. Cucumber Feta Rolls
Don’t just think appetizers – these make great packed lunches. Use the thin slice blade option on your mandoline with Persian cucumbers to keep them flexible and load them as heavily as you like!
25. Zucchini Lasagna with Bolognese Sauce
In the immortal words of Garfield – who doesn’t love lasagna? This recipe uses zucchini “flat noodles” to make the dish healthier and low-carb. That’s right…have seconds…thirds…the whole pan…
26. Parmesan Tomato Zucchini Bake
Simply stack fresh tomatoes, zucchini and summer squash in layers. Top the layers with garlic, onion and Parmesan cheese. Tah dah!
27. Skinny Eggplant Rollatini
Eggplant has often been used in place of lasagna noodles in vegetarian pasta dishes. Double your cheese and add spinach (or our favorite – peppery arugula) to double your veggie intake without feeling like you’re eating rabbit-food!
28. Zucchini Lasagna Rolls
Here are yummy single-serving lasagna rolls to make this notoriously sloppy dish a bit easier to serve. It’s a healthier take on traditional versions that holds up well to your favorite hearty meat sauce if desired.
29. Cinnamon Sugar Baked Apple Chips
Okay, you can get a little naughty with this one – but we recommend maple sugar or coconut sugar on these to keep them Paleo.
30. Cucumbers in Sour Cream
This dish is a delightful combo of cool, refreshing and creamy. Go organic with the sour cream, you won’t be disappointed.
