Zucchini Ribbons

Author Notes: I like to skewer zucchini ribbon style and serve as a side, either grilled or raw. Before serving, a sprinkle of herbs, drizzle of vinaigrette or olive oil, optional - skewer with cherry tomatoes. Anyway it is a fun edible way to decorate your plate; the flavor possibilities are endless! Note: for grilling, I prefer using a vegetable grilling pan.

Serves as many as you planned for

  • ITEMS NEEDED
  • Small to medium size zucchini
  • Vegetable peeler
  • Wooden skewers
  • Herb(s) and flavorings of your choice
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil spray (or cooking spray)
  1. INSTRUCTIONS
  2. Wash and chop off the ends of the zucchini.
  3. With a vegetable peeler, peel strips lengthwise. Turn as you reach the seeds. Discard the core.
  4. Skewer ribbon style, refrigerate until ready to plate.
  5. Right before serving, season the ribbons with herb(s) of your choice and lightly spritz with vinegar & olive oil - flavors up to you.
  6. Salt & pepper to taste.
  7. Grilling note: Using a vegetable grill pan or placed on foil works wonders because the ribbons like falling through the grill.

Love these! I would probably add a squeeze of a citrus, too.

Yes...I drizzle a bit of vinaigrette sometimes.
