Perk up your dinner plate with this summery fritter made from summer squash and carrots. Add your favorite herbs from the garden for a real summertime treat!



Combine zucchini, carrots and salt in a colander. Place the colander in the sink and let sit for 15 minutes. Using a clean dish towel, squeeze out as much moisture from the zucchini and carrots as possible (this is easiest done in batches).

In a large bowl, combine zucchini, carrots, eggs, flour, cheese, green onions, garlic and black pepper; mix well.

Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Scoop about 1/4 cup zucchini batter into the pan and flatten into a pancake shape. Cook until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve the fritters with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream on top.
