I knew I would like this as I love anything lemon.We're big fans of zucchini, so we gave it a go. This salad is much tastier than expected from the simple ingredients and the simple prep. I can predict that there will be a big bowl of this salad in my fridge all summer. Easy prep, inexpensive, healthy, and very tasty. What's not to love? Thanks much for posting.

Very tasty salad. I cut up the zucchini and green beans before leaving for work in the morning and in the evening it only took about 10 minutes to get it to the table. I added a little extra parmesan and I used dried basil instead of fresh. I ate mine over a bed of baby spinach, while DBF ate his plain. We both enjoyed it immensely and I will be making this again!

Very good salad. Had this for lunch a few days this week, and it is light and refreshing. Very nice for summer. Would be great with a grilled lamb or other dish.
