Simple Zucchini Pasta Salad
This zucchini pasta salad is easy to assemble and will be ready in about 5 minutes. The zucchini ‘noodles’ can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for a couple days, making for a quick grab-n-go meal idea any time you need.
How Do You Make Zucchini Noodles?
Zucchini noodles can be made using a julienne tool or sprializer. For the zucchini pasta you see here I used a julienne tool, creating straight noodles. This tool is small and easily fits in the utensils drawer. On the hand, a spiralizer is a bit bulkier, and creates long curly noodles, like these spriralized zucchini noodles. Both tools are great to have on hand, creating different style noodles. (This paragraph contains affiliate links.)
How To Make Zucchini Pasta Salad?
Simply julinne or spiralize your zucchini. Place the zucchini in a bowl, along with halved cherry tomatoes, a few sprouts, avocado, chiffonaded basil, and sprinkle of salt and pepper. Add a big squeeze of lemon overtop. If you like, a little olive oil is great too.
And don’t forget your almond parmesan, it’s a great staple to have in the pantry or fridge for meals like this, topping it off nicely while adding more nutrition and flavor!
