Author Notes

While at the Greenmarket this weekend, I came across beautiful zucchini and their wonderfully yellow blossoms. At first, I thought I might cook them, however after a taste of their raw sweetness, I quickly decided to make a shaved zucchini salad. Simple and easy to prepare, the quality of the ingredients for this recipe are of particular importance. —gourmettenyc
