Greek Zoodle Salad Ingredients
- black olives
- cherry tomatoes
- goat cheese
- fresh parsley
- Greek dressing (recipe included, but feel free to use store-bought if you prefer)
Preparing This Cold Zoodle Salad
- The first thing you need to do is get the veggies ready. Below I list a few different ways to make spiralized zucchini.
- Place the zoodles, tomatoes, and olives in a large salad bowl.
- Add in the creamy goat cheese.
- Mix up the salad dressing ingredients, pour, toss, and garnish.
Zucchinis are available all year round. When the growing season is in full swing, muffins, bread, and cakes are just some of the delicious ways to enjoy it.
Zucchini Burgers are a fun alternative to meat-based burgers. Perfect for bbq season.
Refrigerator Zucchini Pickles are a must during grilling season. The perfect topping for burgers, hot dogs, and sausage on a bun.
Have you tried Zucchini Noodle Gazpacho? What a great cold soup for the summer months.
Goat Cheese – I prefer sheep milk cheese over the cow milk variety as it seems to crumble nicely. A great alternative would be feta cheese. Vegan cheese is an option as well.
Black Olives – can be replaced with any type of olive you like. You could even add some capers to the mix.
Cherry Tomatoes – I really like using these in salads. Any tomato will work. Large tomatoes can be cut into chunks. You may want to remove the pulp and seeds so your salad will not be too watery.
Oil – olive is my choice for this recipe. Avocado oil is a great option.
Parsley – Italian flat-leaf, or regular curly parsley will work. Not into parsley? Shred some kale or add some basil.
Seasoning – store-bought Greek seasoning is readily available. You can even make your own blend of herbs and spices. Italian seasoning is also good.
Add-Ins – if you want to turn this into a dinner salad, toss in some sliced chicken or turkey. Sauteed shrimp would be great too. Need it meat-free? Chickpeas would be great here.
Storing – this zucchini salad will keep for 1-2 days in the refrigerator. Best served just after assembly.
What Is a Zoodle?
Zoodles have been on the culinary scene for a long time. What a fun way to incorporate nutritious zucchini into healthy zoodle recipes. A veggie alternative to pasta that is low in carbs, keto-friendly, and gluten-free too.
Do you cook zoodles? They can be eaten raw or slightly cooked.
The easiest way to make zucchini noodles is with a spiralizer (affiliate link). Believe me, I didn’t think I needed this handy dandy kitchen gadget. I know there are ways to make them without using a spiralizer, but this is the safest way for sure.
I have a mandolin (yup another gadget) that works fairly well. My husband stresses me out when I use it, so I try to make sure he is not around. Too many horror stories seen on MasterChef and Hell’s Kitchen have him hovering over me when I use it.
You can buy ready-made zucchini noodles. Actually now, there are several spiralized veggies available in the grocery store. Get yourself a handy spiralizer and make them. Not only are they fun to make, but you will also save money doing it yourself. Your new kitchen gadget will earn its keep in no time.
Now that you are having so much fun in the kitchen, be sure to experiment with LOTS of spiralized veggies.
