2 – Peel and cut (in large chunks) the summer squash.  Place in baking dish, covered, with a very small amount of water.  Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil.  Cook on high for 2 minutes, just to soften a bit.  Set aside.

3- Chop onion and radishes.  Do not cook.  Stir into the squash.  Add an additional small amount of salt and pepper for seasoning.  Squirt a generous amount of lemon juice over the whole.  Add, if desired, more olive oil.
