Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters

To have to try this.  It’s awesome.

The Cast:

  • 2 medium zucchini, peeled and grated
  • kosher salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • dash of red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb No Salt seasoning

Peel and grate the zucchini and lightly salt.  Remove as much moisture with a towel or paper towel as possible.  Add all the other ingredients except the oil and mix thoroughly.  Heat the oil in a skillet.  Drop the zucchini mixture by large spoonfuls in to the skillet of hot oil.  (Watch yer self here so you don’t get burned.)  Flatten slightly.  Cook slowly about 6 to 8 minutes on each side to a lovely brown.  Turn and repeat cooking on the other side.  Drain on a paper towel.  Eat up!

These are great as a side for fish or chicken or add some cheese on top and use it as a main course.


Cucumber Salad


Always looking for quick yet delicious side dishes.  This is one of my favorites.  It’s great for everyday family dinners for in large batches for cookouts.

  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and diced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 sweet onion, peeled and thinly sliced or diced
  • 1/3 cup of white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • A pinch of salt

Prepare veggies, combine the salt, vinegar and sugar.  Heat to just warm to dissolve the sugar.  Place the vinegar in the fridge for a bit to cool.  When cool pour over the veggies and mix.  Place in the fridge for a few hours.  Enjoy!
