Zucchini Salad

We’re finally growing zucchinis!  One of our favourite ways to eat them is in this salad.

Make a simple dressing by measuring the following ingredients into a jar and giving them a good shake to combine (we didn’t need all the dressing for the salad above)…

  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • salt and pepper to taste
