I whipped up this salad last night and it was so delicious. This is a great way to sneak fresh zucchini into a meal. Everybody has extra zucchini at this time of year! We served it with popcorn and it was a perfect supper for a scorching-hot day.
1 whole cucumber, chopped
1 whole red tomato, chopped
1/2 c yellow or sungold cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small zucchini, shredded
1-2 T fresh parsley
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 to 1 c chopped carrots
1/2 gypsy pepper
1/2 c kalamata olives
2 T shredded horseradish cheese
a few dashes of Tajin fruit seasoning (a mix of chili peppers, salt, and dehydrated lime juice)
1/4 c kalamata olive brine from jar
2 T olive oil
2 T rice wine vinegar
Chop veggies and parsley, add shredded zucchini and shredded cheese and then toss. Mix olive brine, oil, and vinegar in a jar, shake and pour over salad. Toss well.
