Zucchini Tuesday - Carpaccio

Tonight I decided to love my zucchini raw in a simple salad. I can't claim the recipe as my own, it is adapted from  this recipe. If you like the bitterness of rocket, lemony flavoured zucchini  and the saltiness of peccarino then this one works. I really enjoyed it.

Zucchini carpaccio 

zucchinis cut very very thin - I used the veggie peeler
olive oil
lemon juice
black pepper
zested rind of lemon
* rocket
shaved peccarino

* from the garden

Toss the zucchini in lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil and black pepper. The the zucchini sit in this dressing  while you wash and spin the rocket.  Place rocket on your serving dish and top with drained zucchini and shaved peccarino. Eat.

What's happening with your zucchinis?  Contemplating preserves? Managed to make the zucchini the favourite vegetable of the household?

Until next week -  Love your zucchini.


  1. I've gone very simple this week - Zucchini Fritters. But I am thinking about storing some for winter now by freezing some grated zukes. But I think there will be zucchini for a little while yet, my two plants seem to be far from giving up.

    1. I love fritters of any sort, corm, zucchini. I do a delicious fritter of zucchini with loads of dill. I love it and never have enough home gown dill to make it so I need to buy it in. Shame cause home grown dill is a wonderful substance.

  2. Perhaps I should have waited before ripping mine out - that does sound good. Oh well - I can always book mark for next year I guess.

    1. It's sometimes hard to know when to end the life of your plants to make way for your winter crops...
