  1. Why would anyone peel a zucchini?

    1. If they are not organic, I peel them. Sometimes, the ones I get from the garden have gotten a bit "out of hand" in size, and the skin is quite thick, so I will peel those, too. But small, organic soft skinned zucchini, I usually don't peel.

  2. I've been doing a 'version' of this with nama shoyu. Love the idea of using balsamic vinegar instead and adding grapefruit. Definitely going to give this a try.
