  • 1/2 large
    zucchini, was given a garden one and it was about 18
  • 1
    i used one small onion, wished it could have been a sweet one, but a yellow one worked
  • 1 large
    clove of garlic (used a plainer)
  • 1 or 2
    vine ripened tomato - ones that are a little overripe are great
  • ·
    sea salt and cracked pepper to taste

    olive oil, extra virgin

How to Make Zucchini Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. I used a mandolin to julienne the onion and zucchini on a medium size blade. Grated the garlic. (All in a fairly large mixing Bowl) Also Add the tomato chopped and save that wonderful juice for the salad as well!!
  2. Began seasonings (I use a product called Morton's Seasonings) Sea Salt and Pepper Cracked ... then begin incorporating the Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar stirring constantly. For me, I added a little bit more Sea Salt at the end.
  3. From there you just eat and enjoy. I give it a good stir before eating, and keep it in a sealed air tight container to preserve the freshness. It is truly a great alternate to a lettuce salad and much more crunchy. Next time I think I will add some toasted almonds or some Sesame Seeds ... just a thought!! It is also a lot better as left overs because the vegetables continue to marinate!!I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. ~Diana
