Top Review by CulinaryQueen

We enjoyed this, but I thought a cup of liquid was way too much. I cut the amount of vinegar and olive oil in half. I still thought it was a lot of liquid and next time I may cut down the vinegar as it seemed quite strong. I will definitely make this again but will use larger zucchini. I used two really small ones for hubby and I and I would have liked more! I also marinated for about 3 hours. Thanks lazyme!
