Zucchini with Feta, Walnuts and Dill

Zucchini with Feta, Walnuts and Dill

Raw zucchini is wonderful when sliced very thin, carpaccio-thin. In this recipe it's topped with feta, dill, and walnuts for a Greek spin, but it would be equally delicious with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano, basil, and pine nuts.

Don't be tempted to save time and toss the zucchini with the other ingredients in a bowl—it will turn watery, and won't be nearly as pretty.
