Zucchini Tomato Parsley Salad

Zucchini Tomato Parsley Salad

 

This simple salad makes the most of the late summer harvest, and therefore shows up on our table every year around this time. With a grilled piece of fresh fish and a couple of ears of fresh Maine corn, dinner doesn't get much better than this.

4 small-diameter zucchini
2 thin slices red onion, halved
1 ripe tomato, cut in wedges
6 stalks fresh flat leaf parsley
salt to taste

Dressing:
1 T balsamic vinegar
3 T extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp hot sauce
1 T dijon mustard
1 T fresh tarragon, minced
1 medium clove garlic, peeled, crushed

Wash and cut the zucchini in thin disks. Blanche in rapidly boiling salted water until just starting to be tender, about 4 minutes. Shock in ice water to stop cooking. Drain and sprinkle with a little salt to taste.

Separate parsley leaves from stalks and discard stalks.

To make dressing, combine all ingredients and whisk until emulsified. Correct seasoning. 

To assemble and serve, remove the garlic clove from the dressing. Mix together the zucchini, the onion and the tomato in a bowl, pour the dressing over the salad and toss gently. Top with the parsley leaves.

There is nothing like a summer salad - crisp and colorful vegetables, The tastes so pronounced. Try this in the winter and, like the old ladies in the Wendy's commercials of old used to say "Where's the beef?" or in this case, simply "Where's the flavor?"

As usual, a beautiful photo.

Stephen...the round-up has gone up!
