Martha Stewart Living Zucchini Salad

My two boys love any type of fruit they are given. However, vegetables are another story. There are certain vegetables, such as broccoli and asparagus, which they absolutely love and will eat willingly. Other vegetables such as cauliflower and lettuce they won't touch. I have been trying to find new recipes, that will taste delicious and encourage my family eat more nutritious vegetables and was intrigued when a recent issue of Martha Stewart Living had a recipe for Zucchini Salad.

This recipe has 7 ingredients, including salt and pepper. It takes less than ten minutes to prep and is very easy to prepare. I had to make a major modification to this recipe. For whatever reason my local grocery stores never seem to have fresh dill in stock, so I had to leave it out entirely. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.

My husband had never eaten raw zucchini before and was skeptical of this recipe. However, after tasting it, he thought it was delicious. I don't think that leaving out the dill made a major difference to the overall taste of the dish, it was still appetizing and my two boys ate it willingly. The best part of the recipe is the fresh feta, which when paired with the zucchini is a delicious combination. A great way to use fresh summer garden vegetables

For the recipe go to Martha Stewart Living Zucchini Salad.

    @E My husband wasn't sure of the raw zucchini either, but I chopped it small and he liked it!
