  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 lemon
  • 2/3 cup fresh basil
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 lb fresh mozzarella

1. Slice the zucchini into long ribbons with a vegetable peeler. Zest and juice the lemon.
2. Using an immersion blender or mini food processor, puree 1/2 cup of the basil, 3 tbsp lemon juice and oil. Season with pepper. Heat a grill pan. In batches, brush the zucchini with the lemon-basil oil and grill for 3 min.
