Start your next meal with a vegetarian version of carpaccio: paper-thin slices of young zucchini lightly drizzled with olive oil and topped off with creamy feta cheese.

What to buy: We made this recipe with standard green zucchini, but it would be equally delicious with any tender summer squash, such as yellow crookneck, pattypan, or gold zucchini. Try using a combination of squash to vary the color on the plate.

This recipe was featured as part of our no-cook menu for hot summer days.


  1. 1Combine zucchini rounds and lemon zest in a medium bowl and toss to coat zucchini. Arrange zucchini on a platter, slightly overlapping the slices.
  2. 2Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Sprinkle remaining ingredients over zucchini and serve.

Beverage pairing: Do Ferreiro Albariño, Spain. This Albariño has zest and brightness but is not simple. It has great minerality and merges lush fruit flavors with stony, earthy tones. It will be a lively companion to the vegetables.
