I know it’s not zucchini season yet but I couldn’t help but pick up a few the other day at our local food co-op. I’ve been watching my little zucchini plants each day. Telling them faster, faster, grow faster. No, I don’t usually talk to my zucchini plants, but they can’t start sprouting they’re bounty soon enough for me.
This salad was one of my favorites from last year. Slicing the zucchini as thin as possible is the key, a mandolin comes in quite handy. The dill and the lemon, wow this is what makes spring and summer all about Salads.
I can’t wait for zucchini season. This summer squash can be used an any course of the meal you choose to serve it in. Toss it in an omelette, or top your omelette with Mango Zucchini Salad, dip it in red pepper hummus, grill it on the BBQ, or our all time favorite zucchini bread. Zucchini is a low calorie fruit, although most people think of it as a vegetable. It’s full of potassium, vitamin A, and manganese, its skin is a great source of fiber.
The zucchini crudo salad is so fresh, the zucchini sliced on the mandolin is amazing, and the dill spices it up!
