Spiralized Zucchini Salad with Italian Dressing

By Micki Brown
Serves 4

Salad Ingredients:

1 half-pound zucchini, ends trimmed, spiralized

1 half-pound yellow summer squash, ends trimmed, spiralized

1 large carrot, ends trimmed, spiralized

½ pound red grape tomatoes

½ cup pumpkin seeds

Italian Dressing

Parmesan cheese (optional)

Dressing Ingredients:

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

Juice of 1 lemon or lime

1 tsp garlic, minced

1 tsp Italian seasoning

¼ tsp sea salt

¼ tsp black pepper


In a pint-sized mason jar, combine the ingredients for the dressing, and shake well. In a large bowl, add the zucchini, summer squash, carrot, tomatoes and pumpkin seeds; toss together. Add the dressing mixture and toss/mix until the veggies are well-coated with dressing. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy!

Note: If you’re planning to serve the salad later, you can prepare the dressing separately in a small bowl and pour in the dressing when you’re ready to serve.
