Mediterranean Spiralized Zucchini Salad Ingredients

Ingredients for Healthy Spiralized Zucchini Salad

Zucchini spirals can be made using a spiralizer, but if you don’t have a spiralizer you can also just use a potato peeler to make thin zucchini ribbons. Some stores, like Whole Foods, also sell pre-made zucchini spirals.

Red Onion is a crunchy, flavorful addition to this salad.

Artichoke Hearts are a delightful and meaty addition to this vegetarian dish.

Chickpeas are a filling source of protein and fiber.

Kalamata Olives add a distinctive flavor to this Mediterranean style dish.

Feta Cheese is a perfectly paired salty and tangy cheese for this salad.

Unsalted Diced Tomatoes are perfect in this recipe, although I forgot to add them to the ingredients shot above 😉

Dressing made from extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, dried herbs, garlic powder, Dijon, pepper, and salt completes the whole recipe!

Directions

First, spiralize the zucchini. Pat zucchini dry with paper towel and set aside.
