This is a brilliant recipe that I use all the time when I have guests around. It is quick, looks pretty and eats as a refreshing and crunchy side salad. With delicate crisp zucchini, peppery rocket, bitey parmesan and a fresh lift of lemon, this delicious recipe is adapted from @deliciousaus and their book, “Feed Good Food”.
What you need:
500g zucchinis (green or yellow, whatever is available)
¼ cup olive oil
2 tsp grated lemon zest
Juice of half a lemon
1 cup wild rocket leaves
100 g shaved parmesan
Salt and pepper to taste
Use a mandolin to thinly slice the zucchini lengthwise and arrange on a serving platter.
Whisk the oil, lemon zest and juice in a bowl. Season to taste.
Scatter rocket and parmesan over the zucchini and drizzle with the dressing. Season with more black pepper to serve.
