Clean, fresh and light. Makes wonderful first courses. The only change I made was to cut the olive oil in half, other then that made as written. This is a must have recipe for zucchini season. Thanks so much for the post.

I enjoyed this for lunch with some cottage cheese. I had small zucchini so I cut the olive oil in half and it was plenty. Next time I think I'll cut the amount of salt too. The toasted pine nuts are really good in this. It's amazing how just a couple of ingredients can taste so wonderful! I used my vegetable peeler and was able to make beautiful ribbons. Thank you so much Mary for this recipe!
