Raw zucchini, sliced into ribbons with a peeler, is mild-tasting; a short soak in vinegar and oil mellows and softens the onion but leaves enough bite to keep it interesting.


  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • ½ small red onion, very thinly sliced

  • 4 small zucchini (about 1 ½ pounds total)


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar and oil; season with salt and pepper. Stir in onion, and let stand 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, using a vegetable peeler, slice zucchini into paper-thin ribbons, avoiding seeds. Add to bowl with dressing, season with salt and pepper; toss to combine.
