Fast and Easy Zucchini Salad Recipe

Get Hooked On Zucchini With This Salad

I'm convinced that nature knows best, because just as I started brown-bagging my lunch again, my local supermarket was offering late Summer vegetables at rock-bottom prices. Zucchini at 59 cents a pound? I decided it was time to start hoarding.

Ideally, zucchini has a nice crunch and a subtle, botanical flavor that's best brought out with a minimalist dressing like this one — olive oil, lemon, dill, and a sprinkling of feta. Eat it right away, or better yet, bring it to work or school, and over the course of a few hours the flavors will meld together nicely. Read ahead for the recipe.
