Using zucchini ribbons as the base, this pasta-like salad is light, yet bursting with flavor! It's a great alternative to traditional leafy green salads, and because the ingredients are sturdier, this refreshing dish can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for a quick weekday lunch, or side dish.


  • 2 large zucchini
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons red onion , chopped
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill , chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 1 cup red bell pepper , chopped
  • 3 oz . goat feta crumbles
  • salt , to taste


  1. To prepare the zucchini ribbons, you'll need a spiralizer or vegetable peeler. Set the noodles aside on a towel, to absorb some of the moisture, if you like.
  2. Combine the onion, garlic, lemon juice and fresh dill in a bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients and toss! Season with salt, to taste.
  3. For best flavor, allow the flavors to meld together for at least 15 minutes. Some extra moisture will be released as the veggies marinate, so transfer the salad to a new bowl before serving.
  4. Garnish with additional goat feta, and enjoy!
