Fresh Zucchini Salad With Dried Rose Petals & Lemon Zest



When I saw the salt with dried rose petals, I immediately knew where to put it.  It was like the missing piece to a puzzle.  I have been ruminating lately about trying out a fresh zucchini salad but I wanted something delicate that can go with the seemingly fragile taste of raw zucchini.   The rose petals & lemon zest topped with lemon flavoured extra virgin olive oil made the simple salad complete.  It was very summery & light.  I had been waiting for a summer break in winter.
