Zucchini Salad with Lemon Zest and Toasted Almonds

I am always looking for a new salad idea and a healthy side dish with lots and lots of flavor. The zucchini salad is tasty and full of great flavors and so easy to make for a quick night meal, side dish or for lunch.


Two large zucchinis
One large lemon
1/4 teaspoon salt -use Himalayan salt if you have it
3 tablespoons slivered almonds toasted

Using a vegetable peeler peel zucchini’s including the meat to make ribbons into a bowl

Zest the entire large lemon and place the zest and with the zucchini ribbons

Juice half of the lemon and put it in with the zucchini ribbons

Use your hands to massage the lemon in with the zucchini

Toast the almonds on the stovetop in a dry pan until lightly browned, I use blanched slivered almonds, and add to the zucchini ribbons

This makes it wonderful side dish!

It is so popular in my house that I usually use one zucchini per person for serving size this particular recipe will serve 2 to 3 people.
