Zucchini Noodles Salad. A fresh zucchini noodle salad with tomatoes, zucchini, and avocado tossed in a lemon basil vinaigrette. Perfect for summer!
Who’s ready for all things summer? The grill. The beach. The sun. The BBQs and the s’mores. The pasta salads. I am and I am also ready for all things fresh summer veggies. I can’t wait for all the summer squash and sun ripened tomatoes so that I can make this Zucchini Noodles Salad over and over again. With fresh zucchini noodles, tomatoes and avocado all tossed in a lemon basil vinaigrette it is like summer in a bowl and will be your new go to salad this summer too. I just know it.
A lot of the recipes that I see for zucchini noodles involve cooking them for a short amount of time. But I wanted to try a recipe using raw zucchini noodles. After all, summer is coming and you’ve got to have some no cook recipes in your repertoire and this Zucchini Noodle, Tomato & Avocado Salad is perfect.
I first wrote about it when I made these Sweet Potato Noodles and I thought I loved it then. Truth be told, as much as I loved those sweet potato noodles, I could not wait for the chance to make some gorgeous summer salads with my spiralizer. I mean, after all, we eat with our eyes too don’t we? And seriously, spiralized vegetables are so gosh darn pretty.
Summer salads = delicious
Summer Spiralized Salads = delicious AND pretty.
But what if you don’t have a spiralizer? Well, I’m going to solve that problem for one of you. Because I’m kind of obsessed with mine and think everyone should own one, I am going to give one away. A Paderno Tri-Blade Sprializer to be exact. It is the one I use in my kitchen and I love, love, love it.
