No. 4: Spiralized Zucchini Salad
If you follow Anthropologie on Snapchat, then you probably saw the behind the scenes of me making this recipe. I recently got a spiralizer and it was worth every penny (and it wasn’t even that many pennies to start with!).
I’m sure you’re not unfamiliar with the spiralizer phenomenon, but have you bought one for yourself yet? If not, you totally should. It’s also simple to use and to cleanup, which makes it easy to eat healthy. Plus, spiraled vegetable salads just look better than chopped ones!
I whipped up this spiralized zucchini salad at the last minute when a friend dropped by for lunch. It’s very light and would pair perfectly with a cup of chicken noodle or butternut squash soup for a more substantial, and still healthy lunch.
The salad only contains a few ingredients—zucchini, corn, tomato, freshly parmesan and finally fresh dill. Do not forget the dill, it’s the ingredient that really makes this salad extra tasty!
I finished the salad off with one of my go-to dressings, a champagne and lemon vinaigrette, that’s equally as delicious on any salad. I highly recommend it on a simple arugula and parmesan salad for a fresh, clean taste!
On another note, I’ve gotten several requests to share my eating habits and workout plan, so stay tuned for that in a few weeks! Until then, I’ll leave you with one tip that helps me stay motivated to eat healthy and make smarter choices all day—eat a salad for at least one meal per day.
