Zucchini Pancakes

Are you growing zucchini in your garden this summer?  This is a good recipe that I saw on Celia's blog a few days ago.  It's a good way to use some of your zukes.
 Grate 4 C. of zucchini, salt it and let it sit for about 15 minutes.  Rinse it and wring it out in a towel.

 Separate 4 egg yolks from the whites.

 Beat the whites until they form soft peaks.

 Place the yolks in a separate bowl...sorry for the glare.

 Sprinkle in 1 C. of feta cheese, I used a little less.

 Add some diced onion, about 1/2 cup.

Add some salt and pepper and a bit of mint or dill.  Mix this all together.
 Add the zucchini and 1/3 C. of flour.

 Mix this all together.

 Then fold in the whipped egg whites.

 Fry them in a skillet with a little bit of butter.

Serve them with  bit of sour cream.  These are really good and are also good eaten cold as a snack.
 I have been making a lot of these recently.  I make smoothies each morning and freeze the leftovers in zipzicle bags so my family can have healthy freeze pops.  You can buy the bags on Amazon.
