Our last night at the beach we decided to just cook whatever was left in the frig. Kerry was in charge of the salad and we had 3 lonely zucchini that needed to be eaten. Another food blogger that I follow, prouditaliancook, recently posted a recipe for a Zucchini Ribbon Salad. Using that as her inspiration, Kerry made her own with the following ingredients:
baby arugula and other mixed organic greens
her homegrown sprouts
fried zucchini ribbons from 3 zucchini (see below)
dressed with fresh squeezed lemon (1 part) and olive oil (3 parts)
salt, pepper, pepperincino
Fried Zucchini Ribbons
Take 3 small zucchini, cut off the ends and slice lengthwise using a really good vegetable peeler or a mandolin. You can cook your strips of zucchini either in a stove top grill or saute pan coated with a tiny bit of olive oil and sprinkled with a little salt and pepper, they only take a couple of minutes. Make sure they cool completely before adding them to your salad.
