I have seen lots of recipes with zucchini sliced to look like ribbons. I thought I would try my own version with some produce from my own garden! This is a great way to serve zucchini without having to cook it.
serves 4 ( 3 points +)
- 1 large zucchini
- 2 large tomatoes
- 2 T. pine nuts, toasted
- 2 T. parmesan cheese
- 1 T. olive oil
- 2 T. balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
- spices to your taste - I used Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper
Shave zucchini into ribbons with a vegetable peeler. Cut tomatoes into wedges and then halve.
Carefully combine tomatoes and zucchini in a large bowl. Add pine nuts. Sprinkle with spices. Whisk together balsamic, olive oil and Dijon mustard. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese just before serving.
