  • Bring water to a boil, then add salt to water. Once the water has returned to a boil, add squash and boil for 4 minutes.
  • Remove squash from water and put in an ice bath to shock the squash and prevent it from over cooking. When the squash has cooled, cut in half lengthwise and remove seeds.
