Cook's Notes

Small zucchini are sweeter than larger ones, especially when used raw.

    I loved the crunch of the zucchini, the creaminess of the white beans, the tang of the lemon juice and the saltiness of the parm. A perfect blend of flavors and textures. Might even make this again this week!

    This is a wonderful summer recipe. The crunch of the green beans (cut them small!) offset by the fresh brightness of the lemon made it a delicious, light addition to our ladies' summer lunch! It does need something red for garnish however - very white, green, and beige. I garnished with some finely diced red bell pepper. Fantastic recipe!

    This salad was OK. I bit too lemony for my taste!

    Very easy and yummy. I will double the recipe next time to have lunches for everybody for the next day (I liked it even better then). The zucchini grate easily on the cheese grater and I used green and yellow ones. I'm also not sure about the raw green beans - wasn't there something toxic in them? I used only a small amount and didn't really go for their taste.

    Betty, I'm not sure how you came up with over 800 calories per serving. I'm looking at a can of beans right now and there are 560 calories in 2 cans. Add 200 for the cheese and 120 for the tablespoon of olive oil and you only have 880 for 4 servings. I figure the veggies are so low that they barely count.

    This was an excellent lunch! I was actually surprised at how much I liked it. So simple and I love the idea of adding cilantro.

    Are the green beans canned or fresh. If fresh, don't they need to be cooked?

    Ate it for dinner one night and liked it. Loved it for lunch the next day. I think I will try it next time with lime juice, green chiles and cilantro.
