Hi. We tried this recipe. Found the taste a little bitter. Otherwise very tasty. Please suggest. Is it due to the peel of the zucchini? Thanks

   Hi Pooja, We have tried to balance the taste with other herbs but, if you want you can lightly peel the zucchini to get rid of the bitterness.

This dip served with toast is great for a party...it is very different and easy to make...the lemon juice, garlic, chilli paste, parsley blended with zucchini, just taste perfect....walnuts add a nice crunch to this dip..
