One thing we love about summer is all of the fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season, which means we get to whip up some pretty amazing dishes. Our summer squash fritters are a family-favorite, especially when they’re served alongside a cool and creamy sour cream dipping sauce. We can whip up a batch (or two) of these and eat some right away, then store some away in the freezer for later. Zucchini fritters are also a fun way to sneak a vegetable into the menu, and even though these are fried, they still count as a serving of vegetables in our book!
There are two super important parts to preparing zucchini and the first is to drain the zucchini of its water. Too much water and we end up with a soggy fritter, so the salt soak is an important step in making the final product taste amazing. Our second tip relates to frying. We want a deliciously golden fritter that is cooked through with just the right amount of crispiness. Our favorite way to serve these is with a yogurt dipping sauce, seasoned with garlic, lemon, and of course salt and pepper. We really like both the texture and tang that comes with using yogurt instead of sour cream.
Each bite of the fritter is warm, crisp, and cool in a trifecta of texture and flavor. Squash fritters are a great side dish to a summer meal. We love how the summer months give us an opportunity to enjoy delicious fruits and vegetables, and this squash recipe is no exception. Our family absolutely devours these when they’re served up and guests always ask for the recipe. One bite and we’re sure you’ll agree, summer squash fritters are a delicious way to eat your vegetables.
