Lori's notes for this recipe:
The Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini song is one of my I always think of Zuchinni when I hear it and it gave me the inspirtion for this light side dish salad...perfect any time of year! The fresh corn kernels are the 'yellow polka dots' for the zucchini :0)

This is a terrifically fresh salad to enjoy on a hot summer day!  The zucchini ribbons - and the name - also make it downright adorable. Grill some chicken or shrimp for the perfect accompanying main course.


Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice,honey, vinegar, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
Cut ends off zucchini. Using a vegetable peeler, cut zucchini into long, thin strips. When you get to center of the zucchini, turn it over and start on it's other side, peeling off strips until you reach the center again.
In a large bowl, combine the zucchini ribbons, fresh corn kernels, and yellow tomato halves. Sprinkle with cilantro and green onions and toss slightly.
Pour dressing over the veggies, a litte at a time, tossing as you go, until everything is well-coated.
Place in medium serving bowl or serving platter.
