Chilled Zucchini Salad with Mint and Feta

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1/2 Teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup chopped mint leaves
  • 2 Ounces feta cheese, cubed

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!

Zucchini Shopping Tip

Buy zucchini that is intact and has glossy skin. Avoid zucchini with brown or soft spots.

Zucchini Cooking Tip

Zucchini has a very high water content, lightly salt your zucchini prior to cooking so your dish does not become to watery.
