Raw Zucchini Salad – With Colours of Summer


I looked everywhere for this salad. I wanted to have a colourful salad made out of only raw ingredients. I would have a green and yellow salad with a touch of red. I had zucchini and tomato so I looked everywhere for summer squash. None. I guess summer squash is as late as summer in the North.

And so I substituted summer squash with yellow tomato. As you can see, I was not really thinking much about the taste, but rather I was thinking about the colour combinations. I even added radish, again for the colour, even though I normally do not like radish at all. Or actually, I should say I DID NOT like radish. But when I tasted this time, a few years after I last ate it, I found the taste more than bearable, it is very delicious.


I ended up with a colourful, healthy and light summer salad. You should try eating raw, I will try another colourful raw salad with some other ingredients tomorrow!
