Foraging with Alexis Nikole Nelson.
This is our adaptation of an ensalada de calabacitas (zucchini salad) created by Iliana de la Vega, chef at El Naranjo in Austin, Texas and native of Mexico. Crescents of green zucchini and yellow summer squash combined with slices of red onion makes for a colorful dish, with bright, vibrant flavors to match. Queso fresco is a firm, crumbly, slightly bouncy Mexican cheese with salty, mildly tangy flavor; fresh goat cheese is creamier and has a more assertive tang. Both are excellent in the salad, so use whichever you prefer.
small red onion, thinly sliced
cup malt vinegar
