Serves: 4 to 6
 
Ingredients
  • rustic bread, sliced
  • soft goat cheese
  • olive oil
  • 1 small clove of garlic, minced
  • handful Italian parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 zucchini, washed
  • white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • lemon zest
Instructions
  1. Using a potato peeler, peel strips from the zucchini and place in a bowl. Add a splash of olive oil, vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine and let sit a few minutes – this will soften the zucchini making it more pliable. In the meantime, add cheese to a bowl and a tablespoon or so of olive oil – just enough to make the cheese more spreadable. Add a teaspoon of lemon zest, garlic, parsley leaves, and stir to combine.
  2. Toast bread either under the broiler or in a toaster. Spread the goat cheese mixture on the slices of bread and top with the zucchini ribbons. Scatter with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
Notes
The Culinary Chase’s Note: Use green zucchini or yellow or a combination of both. Enjoy!
