White Bean Salad With Zucchini and Parmesan Cheese

"I do not remember where this came from, but I make it all the time! It is light and refreshing, perfect for spring and summer. I will warn--it is very lemony, but that is easily remedied. I sometimes make this on a Sunday and let the flavors marry overnight then have it for lunch throughout the week. The size of the salad can easily vary also."

  1. Yum. Anyone who loves lemon as much as I do will love this! I scored the zucchini first, which really looked pretty. Next time I will slice the it even thinner. I did not have green beans on hand so I left them out, and I substituted one can of red kidney beans for color. I was skeptical about the parmesan, but it really hits the spot. I especially love that this salad has very little oil and lots of protein. Thanks fishywitch.
  2. One lemon was plenty of lemon for my tastes. Great ingredient combination, fishywitch. I really liked the parmesan crumbled rather than the usual shaved, shredded or grated. We had this last August with fresh ingredients and it was perfect. I liked this best after marinating overnight.


I love to cook! My house is usually full of my kids friends because their moms do not cook from scratch and they cannot believe how good food can taste! I have a DH, two children, a DD (17) and a DS (20), but I usually cook for 10 every night!! Then there is the love of my life, my grandson Damian (2). Wow!! What a gift from above. My dad had a heart attack when I was nine, so my mom stopped cooking a big meal at night and started cooking a big meal for lunch (dinner). Well, I still had to go to school. Leftovers got really old really fast, so I started cooking. And the rest ~as they say~is history!! I was ecstatic when I stumbled upon Recipezaar, now I am obsessed. <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CROCKPOTSTKR.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
