zucchini fritters & ranch dressing

There are so many recipes for zucchini fritters on the internet but I usually just go with a variation of potato latkes, potato pancakes. DELICIOUS!
Even on the low FODMaP diet and low histamine diet, Will can get away with these if he opts for crab-apple jelly instead of ranch dressing on top.

1 medium zucchini (about 8")
1/2 tsp salt
1 green onion (opt)
1 egg
2 Tbsp GF flour
1/2 tsp thyme or mild herb
a little pepper
2 Tbsp oil for cooking

Grate the zucchini and sprinkle on the salt, mix a bit & wrap in a tea towel or cheese cloth. Let sit a few minutes in a bowl, then wring all the liquid out of the zucchini. It's amazing how wet those suckers actually are. Discard the liquid.
Drop the zucchini in a bowl and add the onion, egg, flour, seasonings and pepper.
Heat oil in a fry pan and drop tablespoons of the zucchini batter in, flattening them out a bit with a damp spoon.
Cook at medium high until nicely browned and flip. Cook the other side and serve with either ranch dressing if you are a normal human being or with crab apple jelly if you are Will.

Ranch Dressing YUM!
1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup cream
1 tsp dill weed
1 tsp  parsley
1 tsp chives
1 clove garlic, very finely chopped
1 Tbsp lemon juice

Blend all these ingredients in a 500 ml jar and enjoy!
