The Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini song is one of my favorites... so I always think of zucchini when I hear it and it gave me the inspiration 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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
