Great post, and also this is one of my favorite summer recipes. If you want to try another version, here is mine: use a Mandoline to get the zucchini really thin. Add a lot of fresh mint, chopped. I use toasted pecans instead of sunflower seeds, and a squeeze of lemon juice with th olive oil. The taste of summer!

Jean-Marc & Kristi, I somehow missed the post where this happened. I'm SO sorry! We feel your pain--Ron had 2 bike accidents in France, the first time he was in the hospital 2 months and the second for 2 weeks, followed by a week for surgery. Both times his helmet broke wide open. My message is this: Cyclists, please wear your helmets! And make your children wear them! We are convinced bikes are just as dangerous as motorcycles, and sadly, Ron has given it up. Jean-Marc, we wish you the best today, and a speedy recovery. Meanwhile, we are crossing our doigts for the house!

Oh my. Been there, done that, so many times and it is SO painful. If it's any consolation, almost every time it happened, something better was around the corner, and we were saved from a bad decision! But congratulations on (hopefully) selling your current one, and on your big life decision. I must have missed a post or two, b/c moving to the states seems to be off the table. Wise decision, given the current rapid and sad decline of our country. Vive la France, and bon courage in the new adventure! xxoo Lynn
