1-2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Time-Saver Tool Tips
-Use a sharp mandolin to cut squash evenly and quickly
-Tossing squash and oil in a large bowl saves time brushing
-Keep the colorful delicate skin intact for added crunch, insoluble fibers and cancer-fighting phytonutrients.
-Feel free to substitute your favorite dried spices and herbs like dill, cumin, smoked paprika or coriander.
