Day 5: a day in the life (& death of a GIANT zucchini)

Spinach Zucchini Lemon Dill Salad

Because my zucchini is so large...
I cute about 5" off the end and quartered it before thinly slicing.

I added lemon zest and the juice from 2 lemons.

I also chopped some fresh dill from my garden...
and added some tomatoes.

Some olive oil and vinegar...and pepper too!
I found these wonderful "Kohn" cruets recently...they work so well...
...no drips at all...
They twist several times to change the size of the opening.
(T.J. Maxx $5.99 ea.)

Let this salad  marinate a bit before serving...
it is fresh & wonderful....

There is still more to come...that Giant Zucchini just won't die!
See you tomorrow! 

Stay Cozy, Carrie
