If there is one vegetable that I really enjoy growing for the ease of growth and its beauty, it would have to be yellow squash. From a recipe standpoint, yellow squash is relatively versatile and can be used similarly to zucchini. This fritter recipe was new to us this growing season, but we immediately fell in love with its taste and nutrition, and knew that we needed to share it with the Hunt Harvest Health community!
