Many of us have zucchini in the garden or buy zucchini
at the farmer market.
My family like zucchini as  salad,soup or pie.
Today we had zucchini as salad

 You need:

2-3 medium zucchini coarsley grated
2-3 tomato cut into thin slices
200gramm feta cheese

for the vinaigrette you need
olive oil,vinegar mustard lemon juice,
salt and pepper to taste

lay tomato slices in a bowl, mix the zucchini with feta cheese,
the parsley and the vinaigrette and then give everything to
the tomato. I serve this salad with homemade french bread
(the recipe for homemade french bread coming soon.).
I make this salad very often in the summer, especially if a lot
of zucchini growing in the garden.

wish you all a wonderful rest week,
