Raw Zucchini Salad
This summer I’ve gone a little crazy for caprese.
Now, I’m not complaining at all, but variety is nice.
Zucchini is not one of our favorites.
We grew them a few years ago, and they did SO well, we ate squash with every meal for months.
It took me quite a while before I could even look at one without gagging.
In an effort to eat more local and in season fruits and veggies, I picked up a few zucchini and summer squash at Farmer’s Market on Sunday.
I remember seeing a beautiful salad of zucchini ribbons – probably on Pinterest.
It was super easy to put together, and I enjoyed it as much as my go-to caprese.
Who knew raw zucchini was so delicious.

Place the zucchini ribbons in your serving bowl
squeeze on the lemon juice

finally add on the freshly shaved Parmesan and basil
