Raw Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Lemon & Herb Dressing


I am tired of being sick!  I have been dealing with some medical issues for over a year now and I am tired of nothing helping it out.  So, I am going to try to eat more raw food, slowly eliminating meat and sugars.  So you may be seeing a lot more "healthy food" being posted.  Today I found this yummy looking recipe at Love Veggies and Yoga. I am reading the book The PH Miracle and am going to try to change the way I eat.  So, hope you enjoy this recipe and keep checking back for some more great food!

For the Salad:
1 zucchini, spiralized
1/2 c mixed vegetables (carrots, broccoli, green beans, cucumber slices, radishes, tomatoes, peapods, bell peppers, whatever you have on hand)
1/2 c protein (edamame, diced tofu, garbanzo/white/navy/cannelloni beans, quinoa, etc.)

For the Dressing:
1/4 c mayo
2 – 3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp basil (fresh or dried)
1/2 tsp dill
1/2 tsp fresh-ground pepper, or to taste
pinch salt, optional
Stir to combine

1. Spiralize the zucchini. Or shave into small ribbons and slice.

2. Add the diced vegetables and protein.

3. Coat and toss with dressing.   Doing this 15-20 minutes prior to eating will allow the dressing to soften the noodles and give them a more cooked taste and texture.  Or simply microwave the entire plate of food for 30 seconds if you want a “hot meal”.
