This is a very light and refreshing summer salad. If you like mint, you will like the taste of this. If not, move along, nothing for you to taste here! I used my spiralizer to make curls of the zucchini, but you could grate this instead. If you were serving more than one person, serve them in small individual bowls for an added cuteness factor. My tip is to make sure you salt the zucchini well to get rid of the moisture as you do not want to be left with a bowl of water.
You could play around with other herbs with this too, perhaps coriander and extra lemon? It’s an easy salad and a way to eat up zucchini. I used a large zucchini and that served two people. For more, just double up the ingredients
