Next time you’re having a busy week, or can’t decide what salad to have for lunch, let me suggest this simple, yet refreshing, quick, raw zucchini salad! It’s super easy to make, light, spicy, minty, and of course, vegan!
If you don’t have a spiralizer, just use a veggie peeler, to make zucchini shavings instead. Trust me, it’ll taste just as good! 🙂
If you are thinking of buying yourself a spiralizer, I say, do it! I’ve recently bought one, and can’t get enough of it! Seriously, there are infinite veggies, and fruit, you can spiralize, if you just let your imagination go wild! So, something to think about.
This raw zucchini salad is packed with flavor, takes 5 minutes to prepare, and you’ll even have time to whip up a sweet treat, for later. 🙂
What you’ll need
1 Red Onion
2 – 3 Crushed Garlic Cloves
1 Tablespoon of Infused Olive Oil
1/2 Cup of chopped Celery Stalks
Juice from 1 Lemon
Zest from 1 Lemon
1/2 – 1 Teaspoon of Chili Flakes
Handful of Fresh Mint Leaves
Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper to taste
Raw Zucchini Salad With Refreshing Mint
Spiralize the zucchini, or make shavings, with a veggie peeler, and place in a bowl.
Next, peel, and cut the onion in half, then slice into long strips. Finely slice the celery stalks, and add everything to the zucchini bowl.
In a separate bowl, add the crushed garlic, along with the olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Give it all a good mix, then add the dressing to the zucchini salad.
Finally, chop a handful of fresh mint leaves, and add it to the bowl, along with the dried chili flakes, black pepper, and sea salt, to taste. Give it a final mix, and your salad is ready to devour! 🙂
But what about that sweet treat? I’ve got you covered with my vegan, gluten free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies! 🙂
Let me know what you think, when you get a chance to make them. And, don’t forget, sharing is caring darlings. 🙂
Until next time,
Have A Bright Day xx
