New Potatoes and Summer Squash with Fresh Herb Sauce

New Potatoes and Summer Squash with Fresh Herb Sauce

I am sitting here with long sleeves and wrapped in a blanket reminding the clouds and chilly wind that it’s still August and they are not allowed to be here yet!  Out!  Scram!

It seems like just last week that I was sweating in the hot sun and eating cucumbers. Oh, wait. That was last week.

I am not ready for fall. But I am enjoying the delicious harvest from the garden.

If you have a garden, belong to a CSA, or make regular visits to your local farm stand, you probably are enjoying an abundance of new potatoes and summer squash and maybe even some fresh herbs about now.  This easy, gluten-free dish brings together these nutritious ingredients in a classy, comfort-food kind of way.

It’s also a delicious way to use up leftover potatoes – so delicious that next time you cook potatoes, you may want to throw in a few extra so you can easily whip up this dish later.
