Vintage Recipe: Summer Squash Casserole

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 


This recipe for Summer Squash Casserole would no doubt come in handy when the squash plants are producing like crazy. The recipe as it is written is missing some details such as the sizes for the Cream of Chicken soup, the carton of sour cream and the bag of Pepperidge Farm stuffing.

Although this recipe card clearly reads “Shrimp Salad Dressing”, it should probably just be named “Shrimp Salad”. It is a little similar to a plain chicken salad. The dish can be prepared fairly quickly with few ingredients and would make a fast, easy lunch.
