Mild, good. I used the fresh parley which paired nicely with the lemon and squash for a really fresh, springtime flavor. A keeper for this lemon lover.

I tried this because I wanted to find something different to do with zucchini and I'm trying to incorporate more low sodium dishes and side dishes into my family's routine. I wanted to like this, but I guess it's just not my thing. I think the garlic flavor was a little too overpowering for me, personally. The concept was interesting, and it did provide a different texture. I don't regret trying it, but I most likely won't make it again due to personal tastes. Thank you for posting though!

Wow, who would have thought raw zucchini could be so delicious! Of course, if the zucchini is old and bitter, nothing is going to make it taste good. I used two 8" zucchinis fresh from my garden. I sprinkled them all over with salt, then let them sit for about 15 minutes to draw out some of the liquid. I drained them, then added the juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 pressed garlic clove, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil, and a few grinds of black pepper. It didn't need any additional salt. Delicious! I could eat it every day during zucchini season. My husband doesn't like lemon on his food so of course he didn't like it. Next time -- and there definitely will be a next time -- I'm going to try it with white wine vinegar for his sake. This is just too good a dish to pass up. UPDATE: I've now made this with white wine vinegar instead of lemon and while it's still very good, I definitely prefer it with the lemon juice.

Absolutely delicious!! I thinly sliced the garlic and zucchini on a mandoline. I also thinly sliced a lemon into the mix just for some added color. I will definitely make this again.
