For the zucchini salad

2 zucchinis
4 tsp. of olive oil
2 tbsp. of lemon and white balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp. of lemon juice
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese shavings

For the croutons

1/3 of a baguette (makes about 1 ½ cup croutons)
A drizzle of olive oil
Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. On an ovenproof baking sheet, break the baguette into small rustic croutons, add a dash of olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes or until the croutons are golden brown.
  4. Using a mandolin slicer, slice the zucchinis.
  5. In a bowl, add the slices of zucchini, the olive oil, the lemon and white balsamic vinegar, as well as the lemon juice. Mix well. I recommend using your hands to mix the salad, to make sure that each slice is soaked with the vinaigrette.
  6. Serve in a bowl with bread croutons and Parmesan shavings.
  7. Time to enjoy this delight! ?
