Marinated Zucchini or Cucumber
In a food processor or blender, combine the lemon zest, ginger, maple syrup, red chili flakes, and sea salt. Process or blend until smooth. Add the rice vinegar, lemon juice, tamari or soy sauce, olive oil, and sesame oil. Process until well combined.
Transfer to a large bowl and add the watermelon. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
When ready to eat, slice the zucchini very thin with a veggie peeler. Place the slices in a colander, sprinkle with sea salt and let stand in the sink for 15 minutes. Rinse the zucchini and place in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle with olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Let marinate while you peel and slice the avocado and toast the sesame seeds.
Assemble the watermelon cubes, the zucchini and avocado slices in bowls and top with toasted sesame seeds and green onion.
