"Wow this was good! I used white cooking wine instead of the vinegar b/c I don't like its strong taste. Doubled (or more) the fresh basil. And chopped up a whole clove of garlic instead of using powder. This will be my go-to zucchini recipe!"

"This was so good. I didn't know you could eat zucchinis raw. I used half yellow squash. My husband doesn't like either but he loved this recipe!"
