With good reason, a lot of summer cooking follows a very basic principle: Less is more. With ripe summer produce, the less you do to it, the more you let the ingredients shine—and the better the final outcome will taste. This, to me, is the quintessential summer salad.

Step 1
Using a mandolin with the julienne attachment, slice the Zucchini (2) on all four sides into spaghetti-like strands. Stop before you reach the seeds.
Step 2
Tear the Fresh Mint Leaves (6) or thinly slice with a knife by dragging it across to prevent bruising.
Step 3
Toss the zucchini in a bowl with the Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1/4 cup) , Lemons (2 Tbsp) , and torn mint leaves. Season with Kosher Salt (to taste) and freshly ground Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 4
Using a vegetable peeler, make shavings of the Pecorino Romano Cheese (2/3 cup) . You can also finely grate the cheese with a microplane.
Step 5
Transfer salad to serving dishes and top with remaining pecorino cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy!
