Zippy Zucchini Salad

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by Kizzikate

I found this in an old cookbook- Food Editors' Favorites, Treasured Recipes. Thank heavens, because when zucchini is in season, there's never enough recipes to use it all! Cooking time includes chilling overnight.

I served this at a BBQ I had recently. Although I didn't care much for it myself, my guests really enjoyed it!! I liked that it was make ahead. But don't put the zucchini on the lettuce till the last minute, as it is pretty wet and will make your lettuce soggy.
