I have never made hemp milk. I will have to try it. Your dish looks fantastic, by the way. Thanks for sharing it.

Wendy M. Klik

Well, like everyone else in the world, I am always looking for new zucchini recipes. Thanks for this one...it sounds wonderful.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Camilla :) At the beginning, I bought hemp milk in a carton, then realized it is easy to make. Also, I can make a smaller amount than in the carton.

Indeed, it's that time of year, Wendy. You're welcome :)


I don't grow it, so am not one of those always looking for zucchini recipes, though I do like the vegetable. It's just a bit more prolific than our needs require. Your dish looks like a perfect way to serve it on it's own. Around here it usually shows up in a spaghetti dish or similar.

Simona Carini

I decided to try again this year and planted two zucchini seedlings, Claudia, but they are not doing well. Maybe it's not warm enough where we are. The lettuce is doing well, so it is not all bad news. I get zucchini at the farmers' market. I like trying different varieties. I can see using my recipe to dress pasta :)


The walls know secrets!! How eerily thrilling.

I'm afraid that I am still in the phase of not really liking zucchini. However, this salad may just convert me! It looks delicious.

(I also think that my dislike of zucchini stems from the vegetable's refusal to grow in our garden. We get lots of beautiful flowers, but zero zucchini develops. It's the penalty of having a black thumb.)


addendum: this is not to say that you have a black thumb, Simona! Others have told me that it could be that the flowers are not getting pollinated. (But we have plenty of bees buzzing around here - thank goodness - but only male flowers are being produced!)

Simona Carini

I understand that plants do what they want, Elizabeth. My lettuce is doing great, so even though I don't have my zucchini, I make nice salads :) I hope you cook some of the blossoms: they are a treat. And yes, all walls know secrets :)
