Warm weather in the South means there is an abundance of yellow squash (summer squash) that will start to make its appearance in gardens, grocery stores and local farmer's markets.
The most popular way to cook and eat this widely available summer vegetable is to batter it in cornmeal and fry it. While this is no doubt delicious and worth every bite now and then, it is not the healthiest way to eat it all summer long.
A healthier and just as delicious method of preparing yellow squash is to stew it down with sweet, Vidalia onions. The squash and onions become tender and sweet, which makes for a delicious side dish to any grilled meat in the summer.
