Summer is here and the garden is already providing an abundance of zucchini as well as Swiss chard and kale greens. While I love grilled zucchini and greens fried with garlic I was looking for some other ways to use these vegetables to add some new interest to our meals. And summer salads are always a favourite in our house, especially during the hot and humid weather we have been having.
This week we tried two new salads, both using these vegetables raw. First we tried Raw Swiss Chard and Kale Salad. The apple cider vinegar added a real tangy flavour to the zippy greens. Next we tried Greek Zucchini Salad. Both recipes were a hit, but particularly the Zucchini Salad. And I’m so glad to find a new way to use the abundance of zucchini that grows in the garden besides grilled zucchini and zucchini bread!
