Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium skillet heat oil; cook squash, peppers, garlic, and cumin, uncovered, for 8 minutes or until squash is tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; let cool.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine squash mixture with peas, green onion, cilantro, and salt. Cover and chill up 4 to 24 hours. Toss tomato wedges with chilled pea and squash mixture before serving. Makes 4 side-dish servings.


Because hot peppers contain oils that can burn eyes, lips, and sensitive skin, wear plastic gloves while preparing them and be sure to wash hands thoroughly afterward.
