Claudio Aprile's Zucchini, Parmesan and Basil Salad
MasterChef Canada judge Claudio Aprile shares his crisp salad using the freshest herbs.
Assemble the zucchini ribbons in a small mound in the middle of the plate. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil.
Lay parmesan shavings randomly on and around zucchini. Squeeze lemon over zucchini and Parmesan, dispersing the juice evenly.
For beautiful presentation, randomly place whole basil leaves around salad plate. Sprinkle with flaked sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste.
