  1. Bring water in a saucepan to a boil, add onion in a sieve and blanch for 1 minute. Remove and rinse under cold running water. Add zucchini to the pot with boiling water and cook for 30 seconds. Drain and put zucchini into a bowl with ice water. Move zucchini around so they cool evenly. Drain well.
  2. Combine zucchini, mint, and basil in a large salad bowl. Mix oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a small cup and pour over salad. Mix and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Try to only use very small zucchini, ideally from your garden or a farmer's market as they are much milder and more flavorful. I pick them from my yard when they are pretty small.
  • If you like raw onion you can skip the blanching step. I personally prefer onions blanched in my salad.
