Thai Zucchini Salad

Print

This is a great packed lunch, and doesn’t require any cooking. It’s super healthy, packed full of flavour, and very quick to make. I love the crunchiness of the vegetables, coated in a hot chilli, but creamy dressing. It’s a perfect way to get your fix of vegetables, but in an exciting way!

Further Food Commentary:

This Thai Courgetti Salad has it all from crunch to flavor and where nutrients are in no shortage. Courgettes also known as zucchini, carrots and cucumbers are low in calories and sodium by nature. The green and orange colors are responsible for Vitamin C and A respectively. These vitamins help reduce sclerosis, bruising, and aid in asthma control while boosting your immune system.

Holly utilizes some amazing ingredients in her dressing which make it more beneficial than store bought. Tahini is an extremely versatile paste made from sesame seeds that adds minerals such as phosphorus, potassium and iron as well as calcium, and a plethora of B vitamins. All of these nutrients help to reduce anemia, promote healthy muscle tone, skin and cell growth. Ginger has been used for centuries for relieving nausea, loss of appetite and motion sickness.

    I love this salad! I was looking for a change to the usual salad greens, and this hit the spot. I used coconut aminos in place of the tamari since I am sensitive to soy and it works great with this recipe. Delicious!
