Zucchini Greek Salad
RATE

For a little twist on the traditional Greek salad, try using fresh spiralized zucchini instead of cucumber! Plus, it almost feels like you’re eating pasta! It’s light and fresh and great for summer and perfect as a side salad.

If you don’t have a spiralizer you could grate the zucchini (and squeeze out the liquid), or finely dice it, but spiralizing just makes it a little fun. You can also save time by preparing a big batch of spiralized zucchini in advance as it stores well in the fridge in an airtight container and you can just grab a handful when needed.
