Summer Squash and Chive Pancakes

Squash fritters made with summer yellow squash and fresh garden chives. A perfect summer side dish to eat with chicken, meat or fish.

My childhood BFF is visiting from Tennessee and she made me squash pancakes the other night with squash from her garden. Today I remade her recipe with fresh chives from my garden, and I added garlic and parmesan cheese and they were delicious. Any fresh herbs would work great in place of the chives.
