Mandolines - Instruments of Terror

Let's talk about the mandoline, shall we? I just got my first one, and while working on one of the recipes below, did a great number on my finger. And, where were the bandaids? Nowhere. Excellent. So, my friends, my advice is to have the first aid kit close by when using this device.

No blood made it into my recipes. Really, people, so ghoulish...

I started this session with a recipe from the NY Times, Summer Squash, Pea and Red Onion Salad with Feta. There was no picture for comparison, so you will have to settle with mine. This was wonderful, very light and lemony. If there is no mandoline in your house, slicing the squash thinly will be fine. Also, I used yellow squash, but will try this with yellow zucchini next time.
