Grilled Zucchini Ribbon Salad with Walnuts and Pecorino

This salad is such a breeze to prep…as salads should be!

Fresh zucchini ribbons are grilled for a minute or so, to the point of being a tad softer, but not limp.  I liked the lightly crunchy texture that they had, and I don’t think anyone likes mushy, limp zucchini.

Next toasted walnuts are added; you can either bake them in the oven or heat them in a pan until lightly browned.  The walnuts bring the crunch factor to the salad; I can’t seem to make a salad without nuts in them…just love that nutty flavor and crunch!

I added shaved Pecorino Romano, you can use Parmesan if you wish.  The cheese brings some salt to the mix, and…well…it’s cheese.  Any excuse for cheese on/in/over my vegetables!
