Because zucchini has such a high water content, it’s very low in calories. One medium raw zucchini with its skin on contains just 31 calories. That same zucchini contains no fat and cholesterol. If you’re trying to cut down on calories, fat or cholesterol, zucchini is an excellent choice.–LiveStrong

- 3 cups cooked wild or brown rice
- 1 lb small zucchini
- 2 cups whole corn kernels
- 1/4 cup sliced scallions
- 4 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp agave or other sweetner optional
- 2 tsp dill weed
- 1/2 tsp salt
Slice zucchini in half lengthwise, then slice into half moons.
I use frozen corn and defrost by placing in a colander and running warm water over it.
Place zucchini slices, corn, rice, and scallions in a large bowl.
In another bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, agave (if using), dill weed, and salt.
Pour sauce mixture over rice and vegetables and toss well. Serve warm or chilled.
