This makes a great side dish for a summer picnic or just a simple side for your weeknight meal. Serve with some chicken, beef, or fish, and a side salad with a lemon vinaigrette, and you’ve got yourself a nice little summery meal!
- 2 medium zucchinis
- 1/2 cup packed basil leaves
- 1/2 cup packed parsley – stems are okay too!
- 1/2 cup (or so) not packed chives. Just a big ol’ handful
- 6-8 mint leaves
- 1 large garlic clove
- Zest and juice from 1 lemon
- 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 tsp salt
- little bit of water if needed to thin dressing
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts (toasted if you like!
Use some sort of spiralizing devise to make zucchini noodles. Or buy them pre-“zoodled.” Or just slice them into thin matchsticks or use a veggie peeler to make ribbons.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, adding water if needed to make sure it all blends. Toss the mix with the zoodles in a bowl. Add the walnuts and serve! If you want to have this warm, you can cook the zoodles in a pan for a few minutes before tossing with the dressing and walnuts.
Woop, that was easy!
