Crispy Zucchini with Honey Mustard Aioli

Zucchini is NOT hard to come by during the summer months. If you don’t watch where you are going, you’re likely to trip over some, it’s that abundant. And I’m so tired of seeing zoodle after zoodle after zoodle. We need to liven things up a little. Zucchini is so healthy anyway, no one says you can fry it a little and make it a fun, crispy snack that still has less calories than a giant honking bag of potato chips, right? 

Of course, if you’re going to enjoy crispy zucchini coins like they are crispy potato chips, you’ll need the right dipping sauce. Dipping sauce is crucial when it comes to any recipe that is meant for dipping. If it wasn’t already apparent, I’ve been living off this honey mustard aioli for the better part of a year. It’s zesty with a nice zing from the mustard, but has just a touch of sweetness from the honey. Creamy, smooth and perfect with my crispy zucchini coins. Folks, there isn’t much better when it comes to enjoying summer produce.
