This was quite a hit at a ladies' luncheon. Everyone requested the recipe. I cut the zucchinis in half lengthwise before slicing, and this made nice bite-size pieces.

We thought this was okay. The vinegar was a little overwhelming for us. Sorry

This was good but definately has to sit overnight. I made it for company and served the same day - it didn't compare to how it tasted once it sat the following day! Very yummy.

This is a GREAT salad. Using SPLENDA instead of sugar allowed me to serve this to a diabetic friend and it was a hit!! A few other changes - Red wine vinegar instead of white wine, and I added yellow sweet peppers for color and about 1/2 sliced Vidalia onion. This is a definite keeper recipe.

I only tried this because I had loads of zucchini. I expected my family not to care for it. We loved it! Really wonderful summer recipe. I never thought we would like raw zucchini.

After baking 689 loaves of zucchini bread, I STILL have zucchini I don't know what to do with! This recipe came out phenomenal. I threw in just about every veggie I could find in my frige-cherry tomatoes cut in half, red onion, cucumber, broccoli, sliced olives, even a can of garbanzo beans! Just make sure you don't over do the vinegar (I only used the 1/2 cup white vinegar, not the cider vinegar). I have also made this succulent salad with rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, and a dash of soy sauce for a more Asian approach. It was good!

This was an excellent side dish for a summertime barbecue. Company loved it.

It was wonderful. I will also use the dressing for other things when Zucchini season is over. I think it will make a great 3 bean salad dressing. This salad was great the next day and was not soggy.
