How to Ribbon Zucchini


Step 1

Select zucchini that are approximately 5 to 6 inches long. This is the ideal length for handling the zucchini and for producing manageable ribbons.

Step 2

Wash the zucchini to ensure that there is no dirt or dust on them. Pat dry with a kitchen towel.

Step 3

Cut each end off of the zucchini with a knife. The ends are harder in texture than the rest of the zucchini, and they aren't good for ribboning.

Step 4

Run the vegetable peeler along the length of the zucchini, creating ribbons.

Step 5

Continue peeling ribbons from one side of the zucchini until the seeds become visible. Rotate the zucchini a quarter turn and begin peeling ribbons again down to the seeds. Repeat for all four "sides" of the zucchini.
