NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 zucchini (about 1 1/2 pounds total), sliced into paper-thin rounds
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 young leek, white and light green parts only, sliced paper-thin into rings and thoroughly cleaned
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs, such as chervil, dill, chives, and chive blossoms
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish, optional
Directions

Shingle the zucchini slices in a single overlapping layer on a platter. Dust with salt and pepper, then drizzle with a 3-count of olive oil and the lemon juice. Put that into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to give the flavors a chance to get into the zucchini. Now scatter the leeks over. Sprinkle with the herbs. Then garnish with the ricotta cheese and mint leaves, if using.
