I created this by rolling up zucchini slices and forming into a rose. Make one for each guest and serve with the main entree for dinner parties. See more of my easy gourmet Garnishes

Prep Time: 10 min   Total Time: 10 min   Yield: 1

Ingredients:

1 green or yellow Zucchini squash

Instruction:

Trim both ends of squash; use a mandoline or sharp knife to make thin slices horizontally, (15 to 20 slices are needed per garnish). Put them into boiling salted water for ten seconds, remove immediately, place on a clean towel and pat dry completely.

On a flat surface, overlap slices slightly into a long continuous row, sprinkle with salt; roll them up as tightly as possible. Cut a thin slice off one end of the roll so that it will sit level; adjust petals if necessary to resemble a flower and serve with a main entree or salad course or first course appetizer for a beautiful flower garnish.

Sprinkle with dill weed, if desired.

Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
