Benefits of Zucchinis
You can eat the blossoms

Grocery stores don t always sell the blooms, but you can find them at farmers markets. And these beauties aren t just for looking at you can eat them, too. The most popular way to prepare them is fried or stuffed, but our friends at Sunset magazine have a unique salad recipe to try. Check out Squash Blossom, Avocado and Butter Lettuce Salad.
