Zucchini Fritters

I absolutely loved the flavor of these fritters with fresh scallion and mint. These would make a great summer appetizer. Next time I will use feta cheese, since I think the flavor will fit better with the other ingredients. Also, I will be sure to grease the cookie sheet more thoroughly since the fritters got a little stuck. When zucchini season really starts, you should see these again.

2 c. shredded zucchini
1 t sea salt
1/3 c. whole wheat flour
2/3 c. reduced fat cheddar cheese
1/4 c. diced scallion
1/4 c. chopped fresh mint
1 egg

Toss zucchini and salt in a colander, and leave to drain for 1 hour. Mix drained zucchini, flour, cheese, scallion, mint, and egg in a large bowl. Form into balls, and place on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes.
