  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried crushed red pepper
  • 2 medium zucchini, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup seeded and diced tomatoes
  • small wedge of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, shaved into curls


  • Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Set aside to allow flavours to blend.
  • Use a spiralizer or a mandoline or a very sharp knife to slice the zucchini very thinly. Place in a large bowl.
  • Chop the onions and tomatoes and add to the bowl. Gently tear the basil and add.
  • Toss with the dressing just before serving. Garnish generously with shavings of Parmesan Reggiano.


*You will likely have some of the vinaigrette left over for another use.
