Lemon Shaved Zucchini Salad

Zucchini is very versatile, and it can be used in everything from soups, to grilled dishes, to desserts and even served raw!  Like the dish I am sharing with you today.  When I want a healthy option for pasta, I like to spiralize zucchini or shave it into noodles. It has a mild flavor, so you can flavor it with whatever you want to! I like to toss it with just some lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt.  If I want it more flavorful, like in this dish, some garlic and shallots do the trick.  I combined it with sweet cherry tomatoes for color in this, and Miyoko’s vegan mozzarella which is amazing if you haven’t tried it.  It tastes just like dairy mozzarella.  This salad is light, healthy delicious and the perfect thing to enjoy on a hot Summer day!  You can find all of the ingredients at our stores!
