Look for zucchini with a slightly prickly, but shinny skin. The skin should be firm and free of cuts and bruises.
Store zucchini in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days. Do not wash it until you are ready to use it. Cooked zucchini can be stored in the refrigerator as well, but should be used with in 2 days.
