Trim ends from zucchini
Holding the zucchini in the palm of your hand, shave long, thin ribbons from the length of the squash into a shallow serving bowl. As you shave, rotate the squash until the seeded core is reached – discard the core
Add arugula if using
Drizzle zucchini and arugula with olive oil and lemon juice, sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss
Holding the cheese with the narrow edge of the block facing up, shave thin ribbons from the cheese over the salad
Scatter with almonds, serve and enjoy!
