Greek Style Zucchini Salad

This was another recipe that popped up on Pinterest. As the boy and I had just bought some fresh zucchini from the farmer's market that morning, it was screaming to be made for the dinner we put together for my folks last night. It was a good call.

(serves 5-ish as a side dish. HELLA RHYMES)

Greek Style Zucchini SaladIngredients:
1/2 pound zucchini (grated) (
I had 3 med zucs and I have NO idea how much it weighed. It worked, though)
1 tablespoon mint (chopped)
1 tablespoon dill (chopped)
1 green onion (sliced)
1/4 cup feta (crumbled)
1/2 lemon (juice and zest)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic (grated)
salt and pepper to taste

1. Mix the zucchini, mint, dill,green onions and feta in a large bowl.
2. Mix the lemon juice, zest, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
3. Toss the salad and the dressing.
4. Chill in the fridge for several hours to overnight before serving.

Easy! Light! Herby! And, really? Actually pretty healthy. Four of us ate it as a side dish, and had another serving leftover.

Perfect little light summer dish.
