Skin - of chicken! If I buy chicken thighs, I like to deskin them and render them down, i.e. flatten them into a hot frying pan and let their fat ooze out (to fry onions etc). The added bonus is that you get a lovely crisp piece of skin to eat!

I used to love them sliced, sprinkled with mozzarella and baked in the oven for a few minutes.

Tartare sauce - easy to make your own. Add a combination of finely chopped gherkins, capers and/or olives to mayonnaise.

Walnuts - a great combination is slices of crusty baguette spread with boursin and eaten with ripe pear and walnuts.

X AND Z CAN BE OMITTED - so the last letter is Y....and then the alphabet can start again (if there is sufficient interest to do so).

Yellow squash! It's good roasted with sea salt.

Zucchini - we cut them into planks, then marinate in olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper, then grill on both sides. Delicious summer side dish for grilled meats.

Considered a Superfood
Very nice simply boiled, drained and served warm with loads of Sea Salt
I also found a wonderful frozen bagged veggie at Trader Joe's not so long ago, Soycutash
