Chilled Zucchini Salad with Mint and Feta

Chilled Zucchini Salad with Mint and Feta
Nina Fomufod

I love squash. All types — summer, acorn, butternut. You name it, I’ll devour it. This chilled zucchini salad is a great side to any protein and can be made in under 15 minutes. A healthier alternative to potato salad, this combination is perfect for your next family cookout or picnic in the park. The feta adds a rich, salty contrast to the light zucchini slices. The mint makes it a party.

Directions

Slice the zucchini into paper-thin circles. Bring a medium-sized pot of water to a boil over high heat. Boil the slices for 1 minute and remove from the water. Place the slices on a paper towel, and pat them dry to remove the excess water.

Put the slices into a large bowl, add the olive oil, and mix well. Add the mint leaves and the feta to the bowl and mix again.

Refrigerate the salad until chilled. Serve and enjoy!
