I did this recipe for a client and here’s how I tweaked it: Summer Squash Salad w/ Lemon Citronette 

https://cookieandkate.com/summer-squash-salad-with-lemon-citronette/

I used crumbled feta

I used crushed, food processed , mixed nuts

Herbs: lemon basil, parsley and mint chopped those and let them sit in the lemon juice

we added some leftover cherry toms once, and sweet pepper the last time

Any squash if fine.

I only had powdered garlic

 PURSLANE:

1. Roughly chop a cup of leaves and place them in a blender with plenty of olive oil, a clove of garlic, lemon juice, parmesan, and any nut of your choice (marcona almonds, if you’ve got ’em). Pulse, and you’ve got purslane pesto.

2. Cooking with fire? The leaves are hearty enough to stand up to light sautéing in a pan—try wilting them with garlic.

3. Or throw the purslane into a grilled panzanella—the lemony bite goes well with grilled bread and vegetables.

3. You can even toss some cooked purslane into a taco, where it will be a bright counterpoint to creamy avocado. (Cook it in oil for about three minutes to get it taco-ready.)

COLLARDS: this site said it better than I could
