31 Yellow Squash Recipes That Outshine Green Zucchinis All Season Long

Yellow squash (also known as summer squash) is a mild vegetable that’s harvested when immature and while the rind is still tender and edible. It cooks up easily and takes on the flavor of the food that it’s cooked with. This vegetable has two varieties and their names provide a visual so you can understand what they look like without actually seeing one—crook neck and straight neck. Both are fat-bottomed and have slightly bumpy skin with creamy white flesh and uncommonly large seeds compared to other varieties of squash.
