READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Sharon123

A fancy and fun way to dress up zucchini! You could leave out the salmon and make it vegetarian. Good either way!

Outstanding Sharon123. I made this for a lunch with some of my girlfriends. We thought this was restaurant quality. The zucchini pancakes were nice and crisp. The yogurt sauce with dill was nothing short of scrumptious. I did as you suggested and placed pancakes on a bed of salad greens. I didn't serve with salmon but with some grilled boneless chicken cut into strips. It all looked so beautiful on the plates. I topped with some fresh chopped chives and pepper. Thanks so much ;D
