Zucchini, Arugula And Shaved Parmesan Salad. Hey Ugly Club…See What You Started? :)

So, yesterday I am faffing around the internet (what else is new?) and I came across this Sleeveface from one of my fave bands, The Ugly Club. You might remember I wrote about them in this post.

Sleevefaces! I forgot about how fun they can be.

A few years back, on a snowy day, me and my kids pulled out my albums (Alvins, they called them in their digital age ignorance), and got down to some sleevefacing.

Pretty poor in comparison to some of these amazing Sleevefaces from Sleeveface.com

So fun!

Yes, there is a recipe embedded in this post.

Late summer screams for ideas of what to do with all of those zucchini coming out of the garden.

This light and lovely salad is perfect. It is already flavorful without the dressing…full of the peppery arugula, the sweet zucchini and the nutty Parmesan. But the Balsamic Dressing just seals the deal.
