Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini Ribbon Salad

1 zucchini (mix of green and yellow)
14 g extra-virgin olive oil
1 pinch sea salt
1 pinch ground black pepper

1 fresh basil leaves, torn
150 g crumbled feta cheese or Parmesan
1 toasted pine nuts
1 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 cup rocket
1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar

Recipe Directions for Zucchini Ribbon Salad

Wash and dry zucchini and trim the ends.  Using a vegetable peeler, peel off strips.  As you peel off strips, rotate the zucchini so that the ribbons aren't too wide.  Spray or brush zucchini strips with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and cook either on a stove top grill or sauté in a pan.  Cook for a few minutes.  Cool completely before placing on a platter.  Arrange rocket on the platter.  Gently place zucchini ribbons on top followed by tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, and pine nuts.  For a simple dressing, use olive oil and white balsamic vinegar.   Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
