Lunch & Dinner Recipes Tasty Treats

Grilled Zucchini Ribbon Salad

In an effort to add more greens to my diet, I’ve been attempting to create big, tasty salads to pair with dinner. Inspired by this recipe for grilled zucchini ribbon salad,  I made my own variation to suit my preferred taste. I switched out the arugula for baby spinach, the hazelnuts for pine nuts (since I had them on hand), and the parmesan for feta. The combination of the zucchini paired with the toasted pine nuts, and fresh feta made this dish anything but boring and I would gladly add it to my meal rotation. The results are as pretty as they are tasty (which is always a bonus in my eyes), and it definitely looks like a lot of effort was executed when in reality it only took a few minutes.

      Me too! I always add nuts – it ensures I stay full for a little while longer

    Looks good, I love grilled and roasted zucchini! I can’t stand it raw though. The feta sounds like an even better idea than the parm.

      I’ve never tried raw zucchini but I can’t imagine I’d like it. Grilled is delicious though!
