      This is one of my new FAVORITES!!! Seriously, you NEED to try this.  It might be a little more work than your ordinary salad, but trust me...it's WORTH it!

       

      It wasn't until recently that I started to develop my love for raw zucchini.  For those of you who have yet to try it, I can see you turning your nose at it already.  But honestly, it is NOT one of those eat-it-just-because-it-is-good-for-you-even-if-it-makes-you-gag kind of foods.  With the right topping or dressing it really is super scrumptious.  With it being zucchini season I have been on a little "zucchini kick" lately.  There is something about the texture of zucchini "noodles" that I love.  I stilled haven't purchased a Spiralizer (the fun kitchen gadget that turns your zucchini into "noodles") because I have a handy dandy SaladMaster that shreds the zucchini in seconds.  But I certainly would recommend one!

       

       

      I've had different green salads with pasta thrown in and I love the blending of the flavors and textures.  So why not try it with zucchini instead of pasta.  This recipe was inspired by one I saw on OhSheGlows.com.  I made a few little tweaks and fell in LOVE!  A few simple ingredients and Voila....deliciousness!
