Inspired Side: Salad With Zucchini & Pecorino

Inspired Side: Salad With Zucchini & Pecorino

The French are known for creating characteristically simple dishes that highlight the natural flavor of a distinct ingredient. In this case, zucchini is the shining star. Crisp greens, ripe cherry tomatoes, and shaved pecorino cheese act as the backdrop in this delicious, quick salad. Slice the zucchini with a vegetable peeler to get super thin ribbons. Serve as a starter to an elegant dinner alongside grilled chicken or pork. It will also couple wonderfully with a light pasta. Don't let the summer go by without making this French inspired salad! For the recipe please
