Another super clean, fresh, healthy, crunchy, delicious, filling, satisfying salad was born today! Now I hope that is descriptive enough! LOL! Made this on a whim and am in love with how yummy it is! I love raw zucchini noodles, there’s just something so good about the healthified crunch they exude. If you prefer them cooked a tad, then go ahead and throw them in a pan with a bit of olive oil for a minute and then follow recipe! enJOY!
