Test Kitchen Notes

The zucchini salad was great! The dressing was well balanced - I used one large lemon, which gave the salad a great tart flavor. The parmesan was a great addition and I think it would be good any temperature too. —hellskitchenspice

What You'll Need
  • Zucchini Salad
  • 2 zucchini, sliced 1/4-inch thick lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 small block of parmesan cheese
  • Canola oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Lemon Dressing
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Preheat a grill to high.
  2. Make the dressing. Whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until combined. Set aside.
  3. Brush both sides of the zucchini slices with canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook on the hot grill for about 3 minutes per side, or until tender but not mushy.
  4. Arrange the grilled zucchini on a platter and sprinkle with the parsley and scallions. Drizzle the dressing on top -- you might not need the whole amount, so go gradually. Use a vegetable peeler to make large shavings of the parmesan on top of the salad.
