Zucchini Noodle Salad

Quick and Easy to Make!! 

The perfect summer dish.  Zucchini is a lighter and a lower carb alternative to grain based noodles. Pair them with your favorite veggies for a flavorful, healthy meal the entire family can enjoy.  

I was craving a bit of spicy and sweet when I made this. It definitely hit the spot 🙂 

  *AMOUNT IS BASED ON HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU’RE COOKING FOR. ARE YOU MAKING MEAL PREP FOR A FEW DAYS? ARE YOU MAKING ENOUGH FOR ONE SERVING?  Adjust ingredients to fit your needs.

Ingredients:

  • Organic zucchini 
  • sweet peppers
  • 1/2  fresh mango (sliced/chopped)
  • 1 cup organic baby heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 stalks chives
  • 1/4 goat cheese crumbles (optional)
  • grilled chicken breast (optional)

Instructions: 

  1. One zucchini at a time: place into spiral slicer and turn to create long strands that resemble spaghetti noodles. Repeat with all zucchini until complete. 
  2. Begin slicing all the other ingredients. 
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Top with your favorite salad dressing.  *Sriracha (the red sauce in the photo) is what I used to give it a spicy taste.  I whipped it with a little chicken broth to dilute the thickness. Poured over the salad and tossed it around in a large bowl.  
  5. NOTE: I had chicken breast grilled already from a previous meal prep. I decided to add that at the last minute for protein. It was a nice addition. added a little goat cheese crumbles. And Enjoyed! 

This recipe can be enjoyed raw or lightly tossed/sautéed in a pan. Have fun with it. Add whatever veggies you like.
