Healthy Squash Salad Recipe: This Marinated Zucchini Salad Recipe Is Crazy Good by 30Seconds Food
Have zucchini or yellow squash growing like crazy in your garden – or have bags on your front porch from the neighbors? It's time to try some new squash recipes! Here's one from Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1 pound medium zucchini (Rachel uses a mix of zucchini and yellow squash)
- 1 fresh garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed oil
- 1 tablespoon coconut aminos, Bragg's liquid aminos or low-sodium soy sauce
- juice and zest of 1 fresh lime
- handful of fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
- sea salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
Here's how to make it:
Rinse the squash and gently rub the skin to remove all the dirt. Dry with a towel.
Using a vegetable peeler, mandoline or spiralizer, slice the squash into thin ribbons.
Set ribbons in a colander over the sink or on a few paper towels. Sprinkle ribbons very lightly with salt, then allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Very gently pat dry with paper towels. This step helps to draw out excess moisture so that the zucchini salad doesn't become too soggy.
Place squash ribbons into a large glass bowl then add in the garlic, olive oil, sesame oil, coconut aminos, lime zest and juice, and chopped cilantro. Toss gently then cover and refrigerate for an hour before serving.
Taste test, then sprinkle with sea salt (often not needed!), pepper and sesame seeds, if desired. Enjoy!
