Zucchini - Sweet Corn Salad

A couple of weeks ago, I found fresh zucchini in the vegetable section of a popular supermarket. This vegetable is not easily available in Chennai, and hence, I picked it up for making salad. Zucchini, a type of gourd, is rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6 and potassium. Though zucchini can be used to make soups and pasta dishes, I prefer it as a salad. Let me share with you how to make a simple zucchini salad .

Ingredients:
Zucchini – sliced thin, 1 teacup
Sweet corn kernels – steamed, ½ teacup*
Salt – to taste
Honey – 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice – 1 teaspoon
Red chili flakes – ¼ teaspoon

*You may use ready to use sweet corn pack instead.

Method: Wash and cut the zucchini vertically into halves, and cut one half into thin slices. Place the zucchini slices and sweet corn kernels in a large bowl. Add salt, honey, lemon juice and red chili flakes. Mix well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes; your salad is now ready to serve.
