During the summer months, I like to keep it simple in the kitchen using as few ingredients and tools as possible. When you’re only using a few ingredients, you need to make them count. This recipe only has 8 items so make sure you use the freshest zucchini, mint, shallots and lemons you can find. When you use fresh ingredients you don’t need to try and add flavor with tons of salt. In fact, there isn’t any salt in this recipe and it still tastes great. My meat loving boyfriend gobbled up half of this dish last night.
1 zucchini, sliced thinly (I used a mandolin to get them paperthin)
3 shallots, sliced thinly ( I used a mandolin for these as well)
1/4 cup mint, chopped
parmesan cheese, shaved
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
2 tablespoons garlic infused olive oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 small lemon, cut in half
Spread the zucchini on a platter followed by the shallots.
Sprinkle the mint, cheese and pepper over the zucchini.
Drizzle the olive oil and vinegar and squeeze the lemon over the dish.
Serve cold or at room temperature.
*Please be careful when handling a mandolin. The blade is very sharp and and cut right into fingers.
