Salads don't need lettuce to be tasty and nutritious. They can also be created with many vegetables. In this salad here, zucchini is shaved to create thin strips that look lovely on the plate and work well as a side dish, or even a main meal with some protein added (try roasted chicken, grilled fish or sautéed tempeh). Other vegetables can be peeled using this method: carrots, beets, cucumbers, jicama, even daikon radish, for variety. Experiment and find combinations that you enjoy!
