Ingredients

  • 2 Small zucchini (sliced thinly lengthwise )
  • 2 Small summer squash (sliced thinly lengthwise)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint (finely chopped)
  • 75g feta cheese (finely crumbled)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (finely grated - about half a lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea or kosher salt
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Note

I used a mandolin to slice the zucchini and squash, but a vegetable peeler would work well too.

Directions

1. Shave zucchini and squash lengthwise into 1/8 inch slices.
2. Toss 1/4 tsp of salt with shaved zucchini and squash and set aside for 10 minutes. Drain any excess water from the bowl.
3. Combine lemon zest, olive oil, lemon juice and mint in a small bowl and whisk together.
4. Toss zucchini and squash with dressing and adjust seasoning with s&p
5. Transfer salad to large plate, top with crumbled feta and serve immediately.
