My husband, Robert, doesn't care much for zucchini, but even he likes this salad, so it's one I make often. The dressing is generous—it can be used on other green salads and even to marinate meats for the grill. I'm always trying new recipes, and I have lots of eager tasters with three children, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. I've entered recipe contests many times before, but this is the first time I've had a recipe picked. It's the nicest feeling!
