2. Apple and Zucchini Salad...

I've been eating a lot of salads lately and I'm looking for some creative yet healthy recipes to make the idea of "salad" less boring. I love cucumbers, but have never thought of putting zucchini in my salad until seeing this recipe. I remember eating zucchini when I was younger, but it was mostly as a side dish mixed in with yellow squash. I'm really looking forward to making **zucchini recipes **as the main dish, especially since they are healthy ingredient to enjoy.

Recipe Ingredients:

• 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice

• 2 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
• Leaf lettuce

Directions:

• Combine oil and next 6 ingredients in a jar; cover tightly, and shake vigorously.
