Reviews forGarden Focaccia
"This sounds good. Going to give it a try. I use zucchini in place of cucumbers in my salads since cukes don't agree with me. I slice thinner than what a would normally do cuke. Works great. Even used the zucchini in my "tomato cucumber" salad for a picnic the other day. No one said anything, not sure they even noticed it wasn't cukes. We make it every summer, you know just a simple layer of sliced garden tomatos, onion, cukes (or zucchini :) ), drizzled with a batch of Good Season Italian. Sometimes I add sliced or small banana peppers too. "
"Fabulous! So much flavor and texture! And SUCH a better way to use Zucchini!"
