ZUCCHINI SALAD WITH RED ONION

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • * 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • * 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • * Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • * 1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • * 4 small zucchini (about 1 1/2 pounds total)

Directions

  • 1. In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar and oil; season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir in onion, and let stand 15 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, using a vegetable peeler, slice zucchini into paper-thin ribbons, avoiding seeds.
  • Add to bowl with dressing, season with salt and pepper; toss to combine.

Notes

Raw zucchini, sliced into ribbons with a peeler, is mild-tasting; a short soak in vinegar and oil mellows and softens the onion but leaves enough bite to keep it interesting.
