Zucchini--Italian Squash--can be a little tricky.  It is so easy to overcook it no matter what method is used.  Steaming, stir-frying--all too often I end up with mush.  But I found a great way to soften the squash without the heat.  And for those who are eating raw, this is a fantastic method.

How is this done, you may ask?  Simple.  Salt.

That's right, salt.  This recipe cures the squash briefly with salt to soften the fibers without cooking, and all of the great nutrition is preserved.  And because the squash is thoroughly rinsed, the salad is not overly salty.

So let's get started!
