Marinated Zucchini Salad

Labels: { }

A simple marinated zucchini salad from Donna Hay. Raw zucchini salad can be rather dull, but when very thinly sliced, they soak up the flavour of a vinaigrette perfectly through marinating. This fresh, tasty recipe will come in handy when zucchini starts producing in your garden.

  • 60 ml White balsamic vinegar
  • 60 ml Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 Chilli peppers, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 600 g Zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 Small red onion, cut into rings, optional
  • A handful of chives
  1. Place the balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, chilli pepper, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine.
  2. Cut zucchini crosswise into thin round slices with a knife or a mandolin. Add the sliced zucchini and red onion if used, to the marinade and toss to coat. Allow to marinate for 10 minutes. Place on a serving plate and top with the chopped chives to serve.

I don't often make zucchini just because of what you said about it being bland. Made this way in a salad with that delicious dressing it is anything but bland! Love it!

Sounds like 'just right' with a bit of chillies and lemon to give it a kick. Looks good too!

Raw zucchini is fantastic with a dressing and in salads. This sounds and looks delicious, I bet we could use those spiraliser things to get swirls of zucchini!

I have not had raw zucchini. Usually I will cook (gently stir-fry) it. Now, your marinade/dressing makes raw zucchini quite interesting.

Will be making when zucchini is ready for harvest.

Totally agree by itself it is boring so this is a great idea and live the dash of chili peppers in there to bring a little spice.
