Raw Zucchini Salad (on the fly)


Since we haven’t had a chance to actually grocery shop yet, I pulled together lunch with the few things left in our fridge:

A few pieces fresh basil

All combined together with red wine vinegar, EVOO, dried oregano, and some cracked sea salt. It was DELISH and the first time I’ve used raw zucchini in a salad but it will definitely not be the last. Rachel Ray Tip: To cut basil, stack the leaves on top of each other, roll them up, then cut on a diagonal. This gives you attractive little ribbons for your salad, pasta, etc. The highlight of the meal, though, was this:

It is so much easier to pour the perfect amount of olive oil onto your salad. And plus it’s just so much more attractive.

Of course, even though we don’t have any food, we still have a lot of this:

But that’s ok right, as long as I’m continuing to munch on this:
