Zucchini Carpaccio

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by superbuna

Crisp and refreshing, this tangy raw zucchini dish can be used as a side veggie or as a salad. It was originally made with baby zucchinis (courgettes) but they are kind of pricey when in season so I use young zucchinis with the same good results.

Great recipe--I modified it slightly by using romaine lettuce and sauteeing the zucchini in 1/2 the oil for 3 minutes, then adding them to the lettuce. The heat wilts the romaine a little-delicious!
