  1. Delicious salad -- with very Italian flavours. I cut the zucchini in quarters lengthwise and then slices, and blanched it for a minute. I didn't have a carrot, so used most of a red capsicum cut in matchsticks. Had fresh chives, parsley and roma tomatoes from my garden. I also used my own Recipe #204998 to dress the vegetables, but cut back to using only three tablespoons. After photographing the dish, I decided to add a small tin of lemon-pepper tuna. It made a perfect lunch. One point, I think it makes 3-4 serves, not 4-6. Thanks for posting.
  2. I used yellow and green zucchini in this recipe, I blanched the silces for a minute and drained them and then followed the recipe, although I did use the Italian dressing dressing at the end, and poured half of the dressing over half of the salad.....only because half the family like Italian dressing and half don't !!!! hmmm Well each two halves of the family liked it, they really liked it! This is a great way to try to use up zucchini, not good if there are zucchini haters in the family!!!! Even using yellow zucchini does not work!!! lol But I do afree some added tuna or cold chicken even.... would be fantastic in this salad. Great recipe Mandy and everyone enjoyed their halves!


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
