Japanese Zucchini and Onion - Updated


This is another old recipe on my blog where the picture didn't do the dish justice.  Here is the link to the old recipe.  Definitely does not look appetizing but it is one of our favourite ways to eat zucchini.  I use a vegetable peeler to make the zucchini into ribbons.  You could also use a spiralizer but I prefer this method.
