Zucchini Salad with Herbs and Red Onion

Zucchini Salad with Herbs and Red Onion
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 7 small fresh zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, or more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil


  1. Bring water in a pot to a boil. Place finely chopped red onion in a sieve, submerge in boiling water, and blanch for 1 minute. Cool under running cold water and set aside.
  2. Place zucchini slices into the boiling water and cook for 30 seconds. Remove and immediately cool in a bowl with ice water. Move zucchini around with a wooden spoon so they evenly cool. Drain and allow to drip dry.
  3. Place zucchini in a salad bowl. Mix in mint and basil.
  4. Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl; pour over the salad and chill for 30 minutes before serving.
