      Not a favorite for us. I reduced both the lemon and the olive oil, and there was still plenty of juice. And it was just a bit too tangy for us.

      Love this delicious salad. I made it with a pound of zucchini, 4 tablespoons of oil and a little extra salt. My zester doesn't do long strips, but that didn't make any difference to the amazing flavour. Thanks for posting.

      Bright color and taste. On this dish please be careful not to over cook the vegetables as you will lose that wonderful bright fresh taste. I cut the oil in half and did not use the pinch of sugar. Was a nice vegetable side that will go well with just about any thing. Thanks for the post.
