Notes

Nutrition facts for estimation purposes only.
Don't skip the salting step.
You can use all zucchini or all yellow squash, depending on what you can find.
This recipe yields zucchini that still have a bite to them. If you want the zucchini a bit softer you can cut them thinner.
Do your best at alternating the zucchini and squash when you layer them. It doesn't have to be perfect and it'll still be gorgeous!
