Zucchini-ribbon pistachio salad

As posted on Boston.com

  • 1/2 cup shelled green pistachio nuts
  • 6 small zucchini
  • Grated rind and strained juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small piece (about 1/4 pound) Parmesan

1. In a dry skillet over medium heat, lightly toast the pistachios, shaking the pan often, for 10 minutes or until they are aromatic. Let them cool slightly. Chop them coarsely.
2. Using a Swiss vegetable peeler, hold one of the zucchini lengthwise over a large bowl and work the peeler along the zucchini to make thin strips. Continue with the remaining zucchini. Or use a mandoline to cut strips.
3. In a small bowl, combine the lemon rind and juice with a large pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil. Pour the dressing over the zucchini and toss to coat it. Add more salt and pepper, toss again, and taste for seasoning.
4. Add the pistachios and toss again.
5. Using the peeler, shave thin slices from the piece of Parmesan. Arrange the salad on each of 4 plates, and top with thin slices of cheese.
