  1. Place the zucchini slices into a steamer basket and set over one inch of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and steam for 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender. Remove from the steamer and cool slightly.
  2. In a salad bowl, combine the zucchini and cucumber slices. In a separate bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour over the zucchini and cucumber. Toss to coat, then garnish with lemon peel.

My daughter thought it was too sour, but liked it better after I added agave and crushed pineapple. My other daughter thought it was pickles.
