Zucchini Salad 1
Raw zucchini is almost better than cooked zucchini.  It has a crisp texture that stays for a long time.  This dressing is so simple, but so good.  The pine nuts add a decadent touch.
2 Small Zucchini
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
2 TBSP Lemon Juice
¼ Cup Pine Nuts, toasted

1/2 Cup Basil – chopped
1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
Parmesan Cheese shavings
1 tsp Salt
½ tsp Black Pepper



 Cut the zucchini either in small round pieces or you can use a vegetable peeler and make ribbons.  Put the zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt.  Let sit for ½ hour until some of the water comes out of the zucchini.  Rinse very well.In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, olive oil, lemon juice, toasted pine nuts, basil, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper.  Mix thoroughly.  Add the Parmesan shavings before serving.
