Happy summer everyone! Thank you for stopping by again to the blog. I wanted to share one of my quick go-to summer salads that I am currently loving! I like to call this delicious, nutritious dish my Zoodle Caprese salad. Ya’ll, seriously this is so easy to throw together and perfect for a cool summer meal. This veggies noodle salad is just so refreshing and all around a win, win plus a slight twist to the traditional caprese salad. The key kitchen gadget that you will need is a spiralizer! I love my little hand-held Veggetti spiral vegetable slicer that turns veggies into pasta! However there are larger and fancier spiralizers if you prefer other options. So here is how to whip together your next tasty summer salad. I promise you will love it! Enjoy.
Zoodle Caprese Salad
2-3 fresh tomatoes chopped
1-2 large fresh zucchini spiralized
8-16 oz fresh mozzarella chuncked (I give a range for personal preference.)
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1-2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper (optional)
balsamic vinegar and olive oil to drizzle.
Spiralize all individual zucchini into noodle form and set aside. Chop tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. Toss together with zucchini noodles. sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Top and drizzle both the balsamic and olive oil over dish. Slightly toss and serve.
Yields approx. 2-3 servings.
