Zucchini Ribbon Salad with Parmigiano and Raisins

June 26, 2011
Author Notes

When the zucchini at the farmers' market is slim, deep-green, and at its sweetest, forget about turning on the cooktop and instead shave it raw instead. With a drizzle of your finest extra-virgin olive oil and a scattering of raw walnuts, this is one summer ingredient at its finest. —earthlyepicurean
