Summer Squash Fritters With Cheese
These summer squash fritters are made with the addition of shredded cheddar cheese. A bit of minced onion and cornmeal add flavor and texture to the simple fritters.
The fritters are great with Sriracha mayonnaise (see below), chipotle mayonnaise, or ranch-style dressing. They make a great snack or side dish.

1/3 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
