    Yummy and so easy to prepare. I followed MathMom.calif's suggestion and added a red pepper cut into thin strips and a cup of button mushrooms. For our taste preferences, I omitted the spicy ingredients and used freshly ground black pepper. Loved the cumin in this. A great blend of flavours, and certainly a salad I'll be making again and again. A great way for me to eat vegetables in a take-to-work lunch! :) Thank you for sharing this super recipe, Kizzikate!

    Yummy! I halved the recipe, chilled a few hours and had for lunch. I will let the rest sit overnight and eat tomorrow. Thanks for a tasty dish! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.

    I made this 24 hours in advance and wow what a difference chilling time makes, with a few amount adjustments, this is a wonderful recipe and I look forward to making it again with garden-grown zucchini, this might even be great using cucumbers, thanks for sharing Kizzi!...Kitten:)

    The marinade sauce is fabulous. I made this a day in advance so it could marinate longer. My kids complained about the spicyness, so I guess next time I will cut the chili powder by half. Personally, hubby and I liked that. Presentation is not very good, as the zucchini all by itself after marinating for a long time looks pretty drab. I think next time I will try adding some thinly sliced red onion, and some thinly sliced red and yellow peppers. Maybe some fresh mushrooms, too.
