  • Slice the zucchini very thinly with a mandolin or knife. Place in a large bowl.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, stir and let stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Season to taste and serve.



  • The salad will keep in the refrigerator for only 1 day as the zucchini slices become softer the longer they are in contact with the dressing.
