Zucchini Carpaccio Salad
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 3-4 as a side
For the basil & parsley vinaigrette: (this will make extra)
  • 1 cup flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup basil
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • Juice of ½ small lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave
  • Sea salt and fresh black pepper
For the salad:
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1-2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • ¼ cup toasted pine nuts, chopped
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta
  • Pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
  1. Make the vinaigrette: Combine the parsley, basil, olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, honey, and pinches of salt and pepper in a food processor and blend until ingredients are combined, but not pureed. You want to still see green flecks. Taste and adjust seasonings. Set aside.
  2. Using a mandolin, shave the un-peeled zucchini into thin coins.
  3. Toss the zucchini, scallions, and some of the vinaigrette together (use as much or little of the dressing as you wish – start with less and taste as you go – I used between a quarter to a half cup). Adjust seasonings again if necessary.
  4. Arrange on a platter and top with the sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, feta and a pinch of red pepper flakes.
  5. Cover leftover dressing and store it at room temperature.
