What do you do when you want noodles but refuse to boil water because it’s 90-something outside and you don’t have air conditioning? Make zucchini noodles! I hope you enjoy this Paleo zucchini pasta salad!
I honestly never imagined myself sinking into a big pile of uncooked zucchini, but I think now I like it raw better than I do cooked! Not only does this no-cook dish keep your kitchen from heating up, but it’s also a great choice for anyone Paleo, gluten free, vegetarian, or just looking for a way to use up some produce. Because zucchini is pretty mild, the garlic olio sauce packs a punch. Plus zucchini has a ridiculously large amount of Vitamin C, lost of potassium, and helpful amounts of various other vitamins and minerals.
I also have to admit making this was fun because I got to use two wedding present kitchen gadgets! Since we’ve only had a mandolin slicer and a food processor for about a little over a month, using them is still a very exciting experience.
I think this quick, no-cook dish is perfect for hot days and nights when you just don’t have the time to make something more involved. I love cooking, but there are evenings when cooking a full-blown meal just isn’t practical. These easy zucchini noodles and garlic sauce are the perfect way to avoid take out food!
What’s your go-to quick, at home meal?
