Tips for the best Zucchini Fritters

Serving these: There are many ways to perfectly serve your fritters, the images include a quick salsa for some acidity that pairs perfectly (see recipe below in notes), but you could absolutely serve topped with poached eggs, a creamy tzatziki or herby yogurt sauce or alongside a feast of barbecue goods.

Quick salsa: Take 1 cup of cherry tomatoes and roughly chop into quarters, toss in 1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley and 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Serve!
