Cooking vegetable salad with zucchini:
Step 1: Prepare the zucchini.
Rinse young zucchini properly and dry. Then cut the ends on both sides and straight so, without removing the peel, cut the vegetables into thin strips.
Of course, you can use the zucchini and older, but then you will need to cut off the peel from them and clean the seeds from the core.
Step 2: Prepare the cucumber.
Rinse the cucumber, check if it is bitter, if everything tastes ok, just cut it with a strip. Cucumbers with bitterness will first need to be partially or completely cleaned from the skin.
Step 3: Prepare the bell pepper.
Cut bell pepper into halves, remove seeds from its core, rinse the vegetable properly under running water, and then dry. Cut prepared pepper into thin strips.
Step 4: Prepare the carrots.
Rinse fresh carrots, peel, rinse again, and then chop in a thin strip, like all other vegetables before.
Step 5: Prepare the Red Onion.
Peel the red onion, cut off the ends, rinse with cool water and cut into thin half rings or feathers.
Step 6: Prepare fresh herbs.
Rinse the greens, cut the stems, and chop the remaining finely.
Step 7: Preparing a salad dressing.
Pour soy sauce, vinegar into the bowl and add peeled and chopped garlic cloves, salt, granulated sugar and allspice to them. Stir well to dissolve sugar and salt, then add vegetable oil and mix again.
Step 8: Mix vegetable salad with zucchini.
Fold all prepared vegetables and greens in a salad bowl of the right size, pour over the prepared dressing and mix well. Ready vegetable salad with zucchini can be served immediately to the table, or you can store it in the refrigerator for several days, because it is seasoned with vinegar.
