Very nice, especially considering its simplicity. I think both the garlic and lemon are essential. It wouldn't be the same with vinegar. I made it just for me and ate some after only a few minutes. It was pretty good, but of course it was even better after a few hours.

I made this yesterday for PAC 2006. I ended up letting it sit for 24 hours. I added lemon zest to the marinade, and didn't put the one clove of garlic back in. (I'm planning on eating this at lunch and didn't want too much garlic!) I was surprised that the zucchini kept its shape and didn't get wilty in the marinade. Fabulous flavor. Zucchini and lemon go wonderfully together! This is a fantastic salad for summer and I'll be making it again. Thanks for sharing! :)

I had giant zucchine to use and I din't know what to do as I like to change recipe.
As I found this recipe I knew that this will be great for them.
I had to make a change as I was using a giant zucchini: I peele the zucchini,cut theit lenghtwise, discarded the seeds and sponge part, placed in a bowl and added 1 teaspoon salt.
After 2 hours I rinced and drained it. In this way most of the exceded was away and I could follow the recipe as described.
I used small leaved basil for it.
Thanks a lot for the recipe we really enjoyed this fresh salad! :)

I found it useful to begin with the lemon and oil amounts recommended in the recipe and work back until I found the proportions that suited me -- definitely a lot less lemon and I also added a teaspoon of sugar. Peeled the zucchini and kept the salad in a big jar refrigerated -- ideal for little snacks!

This is so simple and so good. It's surprising how good this simple recipe is. I have used only locally grown zuchinni so far and I'm hoping it will be good when that's no longer available.

I really had high hopes for this but, unfortunately, I guess it wasn't too our liking very much. Was too lemony/tart...and the flavors were -- like another reader -- too simple. I would have preferred a much more complex, deep flavor. Thanks for posting it!

This had a delicious fresh taste I was amazed at how wonderful it came out! Everyone at the party I took it to couldn't believe it was Zucchini. I used fresh basil in mine.
