Zesty Zucchini Side Salad: October 2017

Zesty Zucchini Side Salad: October 2017   Spring has sprung here in the Southern hemisphere and the change in temperature has brought with it a desire for light, fresh tasty salads. This is a simple and delicious way to use zucchini which I enjoy eating raw more than when it's cooked. The flavors of this dressing add a delicious zing to the dish.
