This week’s recipe is a salad that is perfect for hot summer evenings, and its packed full of nutrients. It shows how using the right herbs and spices, along with simple, fresh ingredients, can truly create some delicious meals.
If you haven’t tried zucchini noodles before, this is a great introduction. By using a spiralizer to slice the zucchini into long strings, you can create a much healthier alternative to your regular noodles. They are really nutritious, have a low glycemic index, and make a perfect addition to many salads and side dishes.
- 1 medium steak, grilled and thinly sliced
- 1 to 2 medium zucchinis cut into “noodles” with a spiral slicer, julienne peeler or mandolin
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced diagonally
- ¼ cup finely minced herbs, like mint, cilantro and parsley
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. coconut aminos
- Salt and pepper
- In a large bowl, combine zucchini noodles, sliced scallions and minced herb mixture. Reserve a few minced herbs for the garnish. Cover salad and chill until ready to serve.
- Make dressing by whisking together olive oil, coconut aminos, salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl, or by placing all ingredients in a small jar with a lid and shaking well. Pour dressing over salad just before serving and toss to combine.
- Top salad with strips of thinly sliced grilled steak, sprinkle with herbs, serve immediately.
