Chinese szechuan style zucchini Salad for an appetizer or for a simple dinner in summer time? I think that is a perfect choice. It’s so easy to make and refreshing taste is perfect for summer time. Especially eating with some cooked grains or pasta which will become a light super when you don’t feel to eat too much!

Even I am a Chinese myself, but from where I grew up, I never have the same style of zucchini dish like this one. I love this dish for a few reasons. First, it’s super easy to make. Second, because the zucchini is only boiled for a few minutes, it actually preserve all the nutrients. Third, you don’t need to stir fire the zucchini, there is less smoke in your kitchen.

I saw this recipe originally from China Szechuan Food by Elaine! For someone doesn’t have a lot of time and energy for cooking after whole day work, this recipe looks like a perfect candidate to cook! But I did make some modifications to this recipe.

  • I added Szechuan peppercorn
  • I added dried hot pepper to add some kicks to the dish
  • also I changed the way how to use garlic in the recipe a little bit

I have to admit that I made this dish yesterday, it turned out so delicious, I finished the whole dish by myself. Three Zucchinis!

Cut the Zucchini to strips. In a large pot, bring enough water to boil and put all the strips in the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes until softened. Transfer the zucchini strips to a serving plate.


Garnish all chopped scallion and 1/2 minced garlic on the top of the cooked zucchini.


Heat up oil in a sauce pan, when it's hot, put in Szechuan peppercorn, dried red pepper and 1/2 minced garlic into the oil and fry until aroma and garlic turning to a little bit brownish.


Pour the hot oil over the Salad. Mix all the seasonings and drizzle over the cooked zucchini strips.
