Zucchini Ribbon Salad

Zucchini Ribbon Salad

Today is National Zucchini Day! And in celebration of it, I decided to make a simple zucchini salad.  I remember a few years back, I went to a restaurant in Napa Valley where they served a delicious zucchini ribbon salad.  This is my re-creation of it at home.  Are you eating zucchini today?

Using a vegetable peeler, slice zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons.

  1. Beautiful dish Anne! I love zucchini and we grow our own. It’s their time now and we’ve been lucky with our harvest this year. I must have had zucchini 3 or 4 times this week, all prepared differently!

  2. It’s peak zucchini season here just now, so I’m lookng out for new ideas to use them up. Your salad is now on the list, the dressing sounds so good – thank you!

  3. How did I not know this? Well, too late now but your salad would make a great way to remember the day belatedly. I like the simplicity of it, Anne. All of the flavors would really shine. Pinning it!

  4. I eat zucchini almost every day – sometimes twice! I make a similar dish – I love these flavors together Anne! And I LOVE zucchini ribbons! I have been using them in place of pasta too.
