Zoodles (a.k.a. zucchini noodles) are one of the hottest food trends right now. Using a spiralizer, you can turn zucchini into tasty noodles. They can be used in place of pasta or in their own unique recipes. Zucchini contains – copper, manganese, vitamin C, magnesium, fiber, and so much more! This ‘Zoodle Salad’ recipe is an excellent alternative to a side salad, traditional pasta salad, or as a pair with almost any meal. What is more, it is simple to make and is loaded with vitamins.

Zoodle Salad [Recipe]

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 6-8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup garlic-infused olive oil
  • A pinch of pepper

Directions

  • Spiralize your zucchini (I use a hand spiralizer).
  • Combine all prepped ingredients, including zoodles into a sealable bowl.
  • Pour in garlic-infused olive oil, add pepper and gently mix.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Some other additions may include black and/or green olives, mushrooms, diced bell peppers, and shredded carrots.

Voila! You have a tasty snack or addition to any meal that is nutrient-dense, satisfying, and vibrant! Remember, there is nothing wrong with traditional pasta. If you want to pair your ‘Zoodle Salad’ with a pasta meal, opt for whole grain noodles for the meal. Whole grain noodles are a better bet than refined, white flour noodles. Or if you want to make your own noodles, have at it!
