5 Minute Zucchini Lemon & Mint Salad

zucchini_lemon_parsley_salad

Zucchini is one of those vegetables that is more often cooked with than eaten raw. Yet, pair some thinly sliced zucchini with fresh lemon juice, buttery olive oil, sea sat and green herbs like mint, basil or parsley and you have a beautiful, raw salad that tastes like spring. To make two servings, you will need 2 medium green zucchinis, a peeler, half a lemon, 2 tablespoons of good quality olive oil, and some fresh herbs. Mint and parsley go really well with lemon so that’s what we used. Using a peeler, slice zucchinis into thin ribbons and toss in olive oil, lemon juice and herbs. Sprinkle with sea salt and some black pepper. It’s also very nice with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  Enjoy with freshly grilled fish or meat.

    Yum! I’ve done this and zapped in microwave for 20 seconds. Softens the zucchini a little and makes a delish side, especially for fish :)
