The conception of this salad has been floating around in my head for several weeks. I was inspired by a picture of a salad with thin, ribbon-sliced zucchini in a magazine I looked at recently. I didn't care for the other components of the salad, but the picture got my brain "a-whirring"! I thought it was such a beautiful and fun presentation for everyday, ordinary, downtrodden zucchini. I mixed and matched several different ideas and finally came up with this Ribbons of Zucchini Mediterranean Salad using some of our favorite summer veggies. Along with the zucchini ribbons (easily done with a common vegetable peeler), the salad includes crisp peppers, red onions, ripe tomatoes, tiny green peas, Kalamata olives and Feta cheese all married together with a lemony herb dressing and finished off with a sprinkle of pine nuts.
