Foodie Friday- Zucchini Salad

This salad is similar to one that is served at First Watch.
They serve it on a bed of romaine lettuce
Chop the following in small pieces:
1 lg Zucchini
1/2-1 Red Onion
1 lg Tomatoes
2 stalks Celery
Red Wine Vinagrette to moisten ( I used WishBone)
I hate to say but I didn't use exact measurements. I mixed and taste.
It's best if you let it sit for awhile. I make it up in the am for dinner.

Instead of chopping by hand I use this chopper (Vidalia Chop Wizard) to make my life easier:
Any chopper will work- I have not been asked to promote this by anyone - it purely is just something I bought and use

This is a great summer salad using up all the garden veggies!


  1. Your salad looks so refreshing and summery.

  2. This is just what I need for our abundance of zuchinni this year! I'm always happy to get another great recipe for this veggie. I'm really big on the "taste and test" method too....can't go wrong that I like that its a make-ahead too, one that gets better after sitting! Thanks, I know we'll be enjoying this one very soon.
