How many here use young summer squash and very immature winter squash, raw in salads?
I really enjoy them that way and have started some other people doing it.
I also make squash pickles, dill, bread and butter and crispy sticks .
Another pickle project coming up is sweet, hot ,green,(not under ripe, but really green) tomato wedges with plenty of onion, mustard seed and whole cayenne.

I use immature winter squash that way, Drinks. Frankly, I find raw zucchini to be rather bland and tasteless, so reserve it for other (i.e. cooked) uses.
But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket

Zucchini is at the bottom of my list, I do meal and fry some but really prefer yellow straight neck or even better, baby butternut.
I do not know how wide spread the squash is now, but this last year was the appearance of the double named squash,( squash, squash, aka calabaza, calabaza), it is sold as calabaza squash.It is a fist size two tone green and has more flavor than zucchini,especially when lightly steamed with a touch of butter and some onion on top.
Mealed and fried, it is better than some others.
