Prepare the salt water in a deep bowl. Use a slicer to slice the zucchini into long strips, then leave to soak in the salt water.
If you pre-season the zucchini well in the salt water, it will rid it slightly of its distinctive taste.
After 10 minutes, drain it well in a sieve. It's easy to strain if you have a salad spinner.
While you are waiting for it to drain, chop the dill leaves into suitable sizes and squeeze the lemon. Grate the lemon zest if you like, and add a little.
Transfer the zucchini to a serving plate. Add the lemon juice and dill, and drizzle on the olive oil.
It's also tasty if you add some Parmesan cheese or feta cheese.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made some chilled Chinese noodles, but I had no cucumber so I added zucchini instead. I noticed that the zucchini had a noodle-like texture. It was tasty too, so I tried making a dish in which it was the main ingredient.
Slice the zucchini into vertical strips like noodles. If you leave them to soak in salt water, it will add a bit of saltiness and improve their texture. It will also rid the zucchini of its distinctive taste.
