Here's another grear vegetarian Greek dish. Soda water in the batter keeps these thin slices of fried zucchini light and crispy. A simple recipe, serve these as an appetizer or meze, or a side dish. Recipe by Nancy Gaifyllia, she says "The key to great crispy zucchini is to slice thinly and fry at high heat so the zucchini has time to cook but not absorb a lot of oil. Use a cheese slicer, mandoline, or long-bladed knife to get uniformly thin slices." Time to make doesn't include resting time. Posted for ZWT 4.
