Using a mandoline or box grater you can cut zucchini into long, thin ribbons similar to linguini. If using box grater, lay it on its side with the largest holes facing up. If you have a really sharp knife and patience, you can julienne the zucchini by hand.
Eat as is or add about 1/2 c spring peas, asparagus tips, chopped tomatoes, etc. Add pine nuts if you’d like a crunch. Be creative! When making your pesto, don’t limit yourself to basil and pine nuts; try arugula or kale with cashews or hazelnuts.
