I was introduced to this fresh-tasting and unusual salad by my long-time friend and food lover, Jamie Dunham. I loved the combination of mint and lemon, with the texture of thinly sliced raw zucchini. So simple and a fun change of pace for a summer salad!

Prep:

15 Min

Ingredients

2 medium
zucchini
1 clove
garlic, coarsely chopped
1/2 c
mint, fresh
4 Tbsp
lemon juice, fresh
1/2 c
olive oil, extra virgin
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut off ends of the zucchini but leave the skin on. Slice the zucchini very thinly length-wise, or use a peeler. You should be able to see the green skin on the edges.
2
Arrange the zucchini on a small platter. Process the garlic, mint, and lemon juice in a food processor until smooth. Add the olive oil in a stream to make an emulsified dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3
Pour dressing over the zucchini and toss gently.
