Marinated Zucchini

Carneros Pinot Noir makes an excellent wine and food pairing for this recipe.

Serves 10-12

2 medium zucchini
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sherry vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
5 peppercorns, crushed
1 Tbsp of mint, minced

Cut zucchini into 1/4" slices in a sharp diagonal shape. Lay them on a stack of three paper towels and cover them with salt. Press three more paper towels on top of them and place them between 2 plates. Let them rest for 20 minutes, the paper towels will be moist.

Still between the plates, microwave them on high for 5 - 6 minutes, uncover and remove to a non-reactive container.

Whisk vinegar, lemon juice, peppercorns and mint.

When zucchini has cooled, cover with the marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
