Mexican gray squash, also called Middle Eastern or Lebanese, is a summer squash like zucchini but its more stocky and with a rounded bottom. Its pale green skin is smooth and shiny with solid, crisp flesh.
Use Gray squash in the same manner as zucchini. It is perfect for sauté or grilling but you can also slice and layer with other summer vegetables and bake into a gratin, saute quickly with garlic and fresh herbs for a simple preparation, pickle or serve raw in green salads, serve fresh, very thinly sliced, topped with fresh cheese and herbs and add sliced squash to pizza and flatbread.
