ple Side Dish: Zucchini, Squash, and Onions // Follow Me on Pinterest

You probably know by now that I love fast and easy meals and this simple side dish of zucchini, squash, and onions is a cinch to whip up and super delicious!

We’re all busy, but we know the importance of eating healthy, real food, so even if it take a little longer, most of the time (we’re not perfect!) we go out of our way to fix wholesome meals.

This is a super fast side dish that only take a few minutes to prepare and is a great way to get a few veggies into one meal. Feel free to add in whatever veggies you have on hand. The squash and zucchini combination reminds me of something my mom used to make, so that’s why I love it, but as with all of my recipes, I encourage you to make them your own. 🙂

Shout out to my friend Suzanne from Strands of My Life for shooting the photo for this recipe!
