This is from Patricia Well’s Vegetable Harvest. I just love all her recipes and of all the yummy recipes in her book, this one screams summer! It is perfect for a hot day and tastes amazing. I did not have pistachios so I used pine nuts.

Ingredients:
1 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 c pistachio or good olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
4 zucchinis, sliced thin on a mandoline
1 avocado, sliced thin
1/4 c pine nuts
4 springs of thyme

Combine lemon juice, oil and salt in a jar, shake well. In a large bowl, toss zucchini with dressing, cover with stretch wrap and let marinade for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

When ready serve, arrange zucchini on plate, top with avocado, nuts and thyme.

Serves 2 – 4.
