Comments

This recipe gives us an easy way to keep up with a vigorous zucchini plant! The small/young zucchini are so tasty sliced thin and covered with this light dressing. We chopped up fresh basil since it is also growing in the garden now. I plan to use lime juice, cumin and cilantro for the next batch. Thanks for another versatile recipe.
