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?
- 5 small zucchini, rinsed and dried
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of honey
- salt and pepper to season
- crumbled feta cheese to sprinkle on top
- fresh dill, chopped
Using a vegetable peeler, slice zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons.
In a large bowl whisk olive oil, lemon juice, mustard and honey until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Add zucchini and gently toss to coat. Let the zucchini and dressing sit and combine for 5 minutes. Sprinkle feta cheese and dill on top before serving.

Sadly, I won’t be eating zucchini today but this is definitely going on my list for next week! Thanks for sharing!

I didn’t realize it was so easy to prepare this salad. I thought you needed a fancy kitchen gadget or something of the sort! I’m going to make this. We love zucchini.
So simple yet so beautiful! I love the salad.
What a great idea this sounds fantastic! 🙂
I love it, another way to try Zucchini!
I’m a typical guy that doesn’t eat enough vegetables. But when it’s served all fancied up and fun looking, and then sprinkled with a little cheese on top, I’m all over it!

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!
Beautiful and simple 🙂 A wonderful variation to typical salad greens—happy zucchini day to you too!
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!

I’ve always loved the way ribboned vegetables look–turned out really nicely in your photos!!
Simple, but with feta cheese, which kind of, you know, makes everything better! The presentation is gorgeous!

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!
This looks delicious – would never have thought of making a salad with thinly sliced courgette before 🙂

Had no idea there is a National Zucchini Day. Have a zucchini in the fridge, will make this salad.

Yum!!! My sister made zucchini ribbons last week and loved the dish so much that she volunteered to do a guest post for me!!! I love yours, too!!! Time to buy some zucchini 🙂
I love national food days! And you celebrated it perfectly with this salad! It’s gorgeous and looks so refreshing! Pinning!
Shame on me for missing your Zucchini Day tribute, Anne:) Your salad looks lovely. So delicate and demure. It’s almost a shame to consume it:)
Thank you so much for sharing, Happy [belated] Zucchini Day…
What a beautiful salad, Anne! Those zucchini ribbons look just like pasta! But I love how light this is and I love the sprinkling of feta, too!
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.
What a delicious way to serve zucchini! Love how thinly sliced it is! During the summer, I eat tons of zucchini and always looking for new ways to serve ti.
