I am in the process of updating the site with some fun new material so please check back soon! In the mean time here is a great new recipe I developed when visiting my mom at her lake house last week. It is a perfect side with dinner or for a light lunch. This is a healthy ("Raw"), delicious and easy dish to make using the best of the Summer's fresh produce:
Zucchini Ribbons with Sweet Corn and Fresh Basil Pesto:
Ingredients:2 Small Zucchini Squash (sliced into 1/8 inch thin slices)
1 Ear of Fresh Sweet Corn (slice kernels off the cob, uncooked)
20 Basil Leaves
2 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or Grapeseed Oil)
1 Garlic Clove
1 TBS Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 ounce of Feta Cheese
6 Raw Almonds
1/4 Cup Feta Cheese (crumbled)
In a blender or food processor, combine the basil leaves, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, 1 ounce of feta cheese, almonds and a dash of salt and pepper, until uniform.
Place the zucchini ribbons and sweet corn in a serving dish. Add the basil pesto to the dish and mix until fully incorporated and the zucchini and corn are well coated. Top with feta cheese crumbles and serve!
Yield: 2 Servings
