Zucchini Lemon Salad

Zucchini Lemon Salad

A raw Zucchini lemon salad recipe with the citrus taste of lemon and sweetness of basil. A refreshing side salad that would go great with a frittata.

The thinly sliced zucchini sits in the lemon marinade almost like a vegetarian ceviche.   After a few hours, the flavours develop and the zucchini becomes soft but not mushy.  You must let this salad sit for at least 3 hours.  I made this after breakfast so when it came around to lunchtime I had a tasty salad for lunch.

I used both yellow and green zucchini as it made a colourful dish.  If you can only get one colour, it doesn’t matter and will still taste the same.  It just looks prettier with both colours. Although I used fresh basil for this zucchini lemon salad you could use other herbs.  Oregano or thyme would still yield a flavoursome salad.

Fresh, simple and tasty as a good plate of salad should be.  It’s a pretty zucchini dish that is an easy make ahead dish too.   For the serving size I’ve put it as 2 but if you could squeeze it to 4 if you were having other salads alongside it.
