This is a nice light refreshing salad. I'm not very found of raw zucchini so I used half zucchini and half cucumber, with good results. You could go completely with cucumber if you wanted.

This was a super tasty salad to pack for my lunch. In order to round it out, I added some diced grilled chicken breast, and it made a satisfying and delicious meal!

I tripled this recipe for our pool party guests, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Very tasty and beautiful salad, paired perfectly with our Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs. Thanks for sharing this luscious salad.
