Claudine's Mixed Greens with Zucchini and Pecorino
One of the best lessons Claudine Pépin ever learned from her father was that all you need to make a great salad is a simple vinaigrette and very fresh, crisp greens. Claudine just happened to find a basket of ripe cherry tomatoes, a small, just-picked zucchini and a hunk of pecorino in the house, so she added them to the mix. If you don't have a mandoline for slicing the zucchini and shaving the pecorino, thinly slice them with a sharp knife or a sturdy vegetable peeler.
