Summer Zucchini Salad with Lemon and Parmesan

If you're looking for a super easy, quick and delicious salad to go with ALL your grillin' main courses, then look no further!

You can make this salad in less than 10 minutes, but if you have more time, I highly encourage you to let the zucchini marinate a big longer (30 minutes is the sweet spot).
