Step 1

Combine the vinegar, garlic, ,and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Submerge the mint in it and set aside.

Transfer the zucchini slices to a platter, overlapping them.

Remove the mint leaves from the vinegar mixture and cut in think slices.

Step 5

Drizzle the vinegar mixture over the zucchini, scatter with the mint strands, and season with additional salt and pepper.

We both enjoyed the zucchini! Love the dressing and I think it would be delicious on other veggies too. Great that it can be made ahead. I used 2 zucchini and and the full dressing. The leftover dressing is going on my raw brekkie. Thank you for sharing this keeper Nat! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
