How to slice yellow squash

Prepping squash is a lot like prepping zucchini, except that some squash have a more irregular shape than zucchini. You can take care of this by cutting the squash into similarly-sized sections and going from there.
For longer cooking dishes like ragouts, braises, and stews, you can slice the zucchini into full rounds of any thickness. For most dishes you'll want them from 1/4 to 1-inch thick.
For quicker-cooking dishes and to make bite-size pieces, cut the squash in half lengthwise. Then slice it crosswise to any thickness. To make quarter-rounds, just cut the squash halves in half again lengthwise, then slice crosswise to any thickness.
For a prettier cut, you can slice them on the bias. This cut is great for stir-fries.
For even smaller pieces, usually for quicker-cooking dishes, just slice the lengthwise halves in half again. Then slice them crosswise as before, either straight on or on the bias.
