If you can find both yellow and green zucchini, the variation in color is nice. And while small zucchini is ideal, medium or medium-large will work as well; simply avoid using the seedy, spongy core.
Trim the ends of the zucchini and yellow squash. With a vegetable peeler, shave each zucchini and squash lengthwise into very thin, wide strips, about 1/16 inch thick, until you reach the seed core. Discard the core. Put the squash ribbons and frisée in a serving bowl.
In a small liquid measuring cup, whisk the olive oil, olives, lemon juice and zest, mint, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Toss the dressing into the squash and frisée. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss again and serve.
