Spinach Salad with Zucchini Patties and Champagne Vinegar Dressing

This recipe was inspired by a post from blogger Emily Levenson, Zucchini Patties with Tahini Sauce. The zucchini patties are quite versatile and can also be served in a pita with a yogurt sauce or done with tahini dipping sauce and a small side salad.

What I really like about this recipe is how quick and flavorful the patties are. They take about five minutes to make when using a food processor and only about 10 minutes to cook.
