slivers of zucchini in hemp oil & lemon

This simple salad or side is so refreshing and summery. The trick is to use razor thin wisps of fresh zucchini, from their any combination of things would add to how delicious this salad is. In the early days of zuchinni blooms I served this salad with squash blossoms for a delicate and beautiful addition.

Simply assemble the following yummy ingredients:

2 small zucchinis sliced ultra thin using a mandolin

drizzle with the juice of 1/2 lemon + zest

and a good glug of organic hemp oil, or your favourite nut or seed oil

finish with course sea salt + pepper (I used a blend of lavender lemon salt today)

add a sprinkle of hemp seeds, and a gental shaving of a firm cheese like parm or pecarino.
