Zucchini Ribbon Salad with Roasted Corn, Shrimp and Citrus-Ginger Vinaigrette

I couldn’t decide to add basil or cilantro. I think either one will taste great but I finally settled on basil. Because I came home with a gigantic plant from the Barrie Hill Farms the other day. Having all this beautiful produce at the tip of my fingers has been such a pleasure and I’ve never felt so creative and excited about cooking.
