  1. ohh, that looks super! thanks for this too! I think the boccincini would certainly aid a non zuxxhini loving vego kid to have a go(else just eat all the cheese)…

  2. Beautiful, elegant, spare.

    You’re my kinda cook. But then, I’m pretty sure you already knew that…

    Now willing mine to grow, grow, grow. Hope they’re listening!

  3. This is one delicious salad. I seem to cook the Zucchini for most of my dishes and they seem so sad. My kids eat them raw all the time though I think wrongly all vegetables have to be cooked!

    1. My daughter won’t eat raw zucchini, ever! It just seems wrong to her. But I love it. You are right, it goes quite limp and looses colour when cooked. Raw is More! 🙂
