It’s interesting how a simple change can make all the difference. Take zucchini. Not so exciting when it’s chunked up and sautéed with tomato and garlic (in my opinion–kind of yucky and mushy). On the other hand, the revelation that we came to last summer was—-the grater. Holy toledo can you make a zucchini taste great simply by grating it. I’ll post our favorite summer quesadilla recipe soon, but here’s another great way to eat your zuc.

so refreshing!

Zucchini with mixed herbs and feta
makes a bowl for 4 as side dish

one half medium zucchini grated coarsely
two green onions chopped
5 sprigs italian parsley
3 sprigs mint
6 basil leaves
juice of one lemon
2 oz. feta crumbled
2 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Chop herbs and mix all ingredients in a medium bowl. Enjoy! It was best on the first go round–gets a bit soggy on day two. Feta seems pretty important here. Yum!
