Zucchini-Onion Salad

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Etak the Thivis

I wrinkled my nose at this in the beginning, then raised my eyebrows at how filling it was! It was a comfortable warm-down after a morning running around on tired feet. This will cook fast, so it's advised to wait until everything has been diced and shredded before you begin.

Made this as a side dish tonight and my DH and I just didn't like it. We thought it might have been better served cold, like a slaw instead of warm off the stove... but as it was, it just didn't fit with our tastes...
