Potato and Zucchini Salad with Dill


Last week while in Marksbury Farm Market, I saw some local zucchini begging me to buy it.  Strange since I'm not zucchini's biggest fan.  It must have known that I needed to branch out and continue trying it, and somehow it ended up in my shopping bag.  When I got home, however, I wasn't really sure what to do with it.  We had decided to grill that night, and I just love potato salad when grilling, so I thought I'd throw together what I had on hand into a potato and zucchini salad.  It was a hit...even with my potato-salad-averse husband.  This salad is really very simple and could be extremely versatile.  You could try throwing in some other veggies, but if you get a talking zucchini like I did, it might get a little envious.  ;-)

I hated zucchini until I started growing it (and now, because of all the wonderful farmers' markets, I no longer have to!), so I totally understand your ambivalence. Nice idea here with the potatoes.

I love zucchini! I didn't start liking it until a few years ago, but now I love it! This looks great!

Did you cook the zucchini or was it raw? I guess it was raw, but just want to clarify! Sounds yummy topped off with dill. :)

@Genomicmouse, the zucchini was raw, but I'd imagine it would be tasty grilled as well! :-)

Yet for the thousands of people gathered to watch the scene, it was a disappointment breitling replica. They'd wanted to see the 38-year-old woman quake in fear and cower penitently.
