This just came across my radar in an email from and I am posting it here for safekeeping. Sounds perfect for using up those abundant squash! I am altering it a bit; the original recipe calls for 1/3 c oil and an unspecified amount of parmesan.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk oil, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and crushed red pepper in small bowl to blend. Set dressing aside.
  2. Using vegetable peeler or V-slicer and working from top to bottom of each zucchini, slice zucchini into ribbons (about 1/16 inch thick). Place ribbons in large bowl. Add basil and nuts, then dressing; toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle Parmesan over salad.

I was pleasantly surprised how good such a simple salad can be. Very much enjoyed for a light lunch. I used grated Parm, just as good but not as pretty as shaved. Thanks! Made for PRMR game.
