Summer Squash with Garlic Scapes

Garlic scapes are a late spring-early summer treat. They're the tops of the fresh garlic plant, and they have the texture of green beans and the flavor of garlic. You can find them at farmers markets and sometimes in grocery stores but they'll be out of season soon, so get them while you can. The pointy top can be chewy, so trim it away.

1 tablespoon olive oil
4 garlic scapes, trimmed and cut into half-inch lengths
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lb summer squash (zucchini, patty pans, etc), thinly sliced
Juice of half a lemon or 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Heat the olive oil gently in a medium-size saucepan. Add the chopped garlic scapes and salt, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until the scapes are just tender. Add the summer squash and cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer, until the squash is tender. Add the lemon or vinegar, and serve.
