Ribbon Salad

This delicious salad requires no cooking and can be ready in minutes. These mini zucchini are firm and slice quickly and easily with a mandolin or knife. If served immediately, zucchini will have a delicious crunch. If kept in the fridge, the slices will become softer as they absorb the dressing.
  • The zucchini are versatile so feel free to create your own vinaigrette or switch up pine nuts for walnuts, almonds or cashews.  This salad tastes great with fish or meat and makes a great side for summer bbq parties.
