While we won't go so far as to call these goat cheese toasts the New Tomato Sandwich, they are a solid alternative. And just like that summertime classic, they're no-cook and use up a prolific garden vegetable.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Using a mandoline or vegetable peeler, thinly slice squash (or zucchini) lengthwise until you encounter the seeds. Discard the seedy centers. Spread the squash slices in a single layer on paper towels and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Let stand for 10 minutes. Blot dry with more paper towels.

  • Whisk lemon juice, oil, vinegar, honey, garlic and the remaining pinch of salt in a large bowl. Add the squash, tomatoes and onion; toss to coat. Let stand for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Spread goat cheese on one side of each toast and top with the squash mixture. Serve topped with pepper, if desired.
