Zucchini Salad
By: Gina Van Luven

Zucchini is a member of the squash family and contains lots of Vitamin C (a great antioxidant), folate, lutein, potassium, and vitamin A. It can help prevent against diseases, like scurvy and multiple sclerosis (MS) and is a great food for preventing bruising. It is also anti-inflammatory and can help with inflammatory diseases, like asthma and arthritis. Zucchini contains a lot of water, making it a great food for summer!

INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)
4 small or 2 large zucchini
Handful of grape or cherry tomatoes, cut in half
½ lemon – juiced
1 cup olive oil
1 tsp dried coriander or rosemary (can also use mint for a different flavor)
1 tsp garlic salt
½ tsp sea salt

Optional: fresh herbs

PREPARATION

  1. Shred or thinly slice all the zucchini (skin included).
  2. Juice half a lemon and put it in a jar.
  3. Add olive oil and spices to jar and shake.
  4. Drizzle over zucchini to taste.
  5. Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.

NOTE:  You can save the dressing to use again in the future. Be sure to store in refrigerator.
