Spiralized Zucchini Pesto Salad

I wasn’t sure what to do with all the zucchini I got at the farmer’s market, but this Spiralized Zucchini Pesto Salad was the perfect solution. This week I was gifted a spiralizer, and decided to put it to good use. I made this light and flavorful zucchini pasta, that makes for the perfect salad or appetizer. It took less than 10 minutes to prepare, and can be customized however your heart desires.  You can even use our Light Pesto recipe to toss in this recipe!

zucchini pestoI love to make this recipe when I’m in a hurry and looking for something quick and healthy.  Especially after those long days at work and I cannot wait to eat.  Zucchini is a type of summer squash that can typically be found in the store all year long.  It is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin B12, and manganese.  Zucchini also provides vitamin A, potassium, phosphorous, and folate.  This recipe adds your daily dose of vitamins and minerals in a delicious way!

Start off by spiralizing your zucchini into a bowl.  Massage the pesto into the zucchini pasta with a spoon to evenly coat the noodles.  Add onions, tomatoes, and feta cheese to the mixture.  Finally, add a pinch of salt and pepper and enjoy this delicious dish.
