Zucchini is a staple in backyard vegetable and salad gardens. It has a thin, edible green skin, creamy white flesh and soft seeds. Shaped somewhat like a cucumber, it can vary from just 4 or 5 inches to a foot in length, with a diameter up to 2 inches. A versatile food you can eat raw or cooked and even use in baked goods, zucchini is nutrient-dense and very good for your overall health.
