DIRECTIONS

  • Cut both ends off each small zucchini, then core, seed & thinly slice the red bell pepper.
  • Place zucchini & red bell pepper in boiling salted water & cook for 2 minutes, then drain & arrange on serving plate.
  • Zest the lemon into long, thin strips/curls (The original recipe calls for blanching the zest for 2 minutes, but I don't.), then juice the lemon.
  • Mix oil, lemon juice, chopped basil, salt, pepper & sugar.
  • Pour over vegetables while they are still warm, then sprinkle with lemon zest & serve.
