1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon dried mint

1 teaspoon paprika

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Place grated zucchini in a colander, sprinkle with salt and let stand at least 20 minutes, or until it loses its juice. Squeeze dry and place in a large bowl. Add the cheese, dill, parsley, onions, eggs, flour, and pepper and mix well. Adjust the seasonings. If batter is too runny, add a little more flour.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy saucepan. Drop batter by tablespoons into oil and fry until golden brown on all sides but still moist inside, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve warm with Tomato Relish.
