Summer Squash Slaw with Feta and Toasted Buckwheat
- ¼ cup buckwheat groats
- 1½ pounds yellow summer squash, julienned on a mandoline or with a knife
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh mint
- 1 teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh marjoram or oregano
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 4 ounces feta, thinly sliced
- Toast buckwheat in a large, dry skillet over medium-high heat, tossing often, until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate; let cool. Toss squash, scallions, mint, marjoram, oil, and lemon juice in a large bowl; season with salt, pepper, and more lemon juice, if desired. Add feta and toasted buckwheat and toss gently to combine.
- DO AHEAD: Buckwheat can be toasted 2 days ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.
- If you can’t find buckwheat groats, use chopped toasted almonds instead.
