Summer Squash Wedges

Summer Squash Wedges

I’ve been active on various social channels and I’ve found a common need amongst various Paleo followers: the need for more easy-to-make side dish recipes. People want something easy, something that is not a salad, and something that requires few ingredients yet still remains delicious and exciting.

I would like to dedicate this post to them (and you!), to provide a simple and quick side dish that is Paleo approved and delicious. You will need few ingredients (some of you might be able to find these already in your kitchen, since they are so common) and only a little prep time. Please welcome… Summer Squash Wedges!

  1. My kids loved this, such a perfect way to use all the squash I have right now. My 6 year old kept asking for more “fries”.
