For The Zucchini Pesto: Zucchini Salt Basil Roasted Nuts

Prep and gather all ingredients. Be sure to zest the lemon before squeezing it for juice!

Next, shred the zucchini, salt it to pull out its excess moisture, then squeeze out as much liquid as possible from it.

Place the drained, shredded zucchini in a large bowl, then add fresh basil, nuts, pecorino cheese, olive oil, garlic, lemon and red pepper flakes and mix until well-combined.

Next, make the bruschetta bread: grill both sides of the bread slices on a very hot grill or grill pan.

Then, rub the surface of one side of the hot grilled bread with the cut side of a garlic clove.
