Prime Quality, From A to Zucchini
A variety of summer squash, the versatile zucchini can take a starring role as a side dish, on a veggie platter or in warm, fresh-baked bread. The secret to its nutritional value is in its peel, which should always be left on the zucchini to ensure it retains its healthy properties. Zucchini is rich in vitamin C, manganese, vitamin B-6 and vitamin K. At just 21 calories per cup, it’s a great addition to a low-calorie meal.
Storage Tips: When storing yellow squash or zucchini in the refrigerator, do not wash the squash before storing. They are best stored in a plastic bag that has had a few holes poked in it for airflow, that is then placed in the vegetable crisper drawer. Zucchini stored this way will last approximately 1 week.
