Marinated Zucchini Salad Recipe

Marinated Zucchini Salad Recipe

Meet the Cook: This recipe has been passed down for generations in my family - it helps to use up the late-summer squash from the garden, and it'll keep for several days in the refrigerator. Wherever I take it, I have to take the recipe, too! Now that we're retired (we have one son), my husband and I enjoy being at home with each other, gardening...and trying out plenty of recipes. -Billie Blanton, Kingsport, Tennessee
