I really enjoyed this zucchini! Like another reviewer, I've done similar recipes, but without the lemon. Really enjoyed this seemed to make it taste "fresher". I'll make this again....thanks for sharing! Made for Stars tag.

Went out yesterday and bought all kinds of fresh summer veggies that are now available. Saw this recipe and said to myself "give it a shot". Of course I love fresh veggies in almost any form from raw to well "integrated" into a recipe. This was simple. It let the zucchini shine through. Have done similar recipes, but wihout the lemon. It's a "yummer" and a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
