This Lemon & Feta Summer Zucchini Salad is one of our favorite summer side dishes. I’ve made it countless times over the last few years since purchasing a spiralizer. My kids love stretching the pieces of zucchini to see how long they are. It looks a little silly when you try to serve it and encounter a five-foot long zoodle.
When my friend Keri of My Table of Three posted her Easy Greek Zoodle Salad a couple months ago it reminded me that I had taken photos of this salad last July and never shared it with you. I have a bad habit of misplacing both memory cards for my camera and the little scraps of paper I jot recipes down on. I found a missing memory card this afternoon and guess what it had on it? The photos for this recipe. Hooray!
It was great timing because I didn’t want to share a recipe so similar to hers right afterward. But with my kids home on summer vacation and the fact that I’m really starting to feel third-trimester pregnant, I decided it was time. I try to get 2 or 3 recipes out a week so this does help meet my recipe quota.
P.S. This is the spiralizer I have and I do highly recommend it. I use it mostly for zucchini but have also done sweet potatoes and apples. Roasted spiralized sweet potatoes are amazing. And my kids think apple spaghetti is really cool.
Lemon & Feta Summer Zucchini Salad – Low Carb, Grain Free, THM S, Gluten Free
2 large zucchini, spiralized
1/4 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup feta cheese
1 tsp fresh oregano, chopped, optional
1.5 oz olive oil
1.5 oz lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
Put the zucchini, tomatoes, feta, and oregano in a medium bowl.
Stir together the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt.
Pour the dressing over the zucchini salad and serve.
Note: I prefer to dress this right before serving. I like the zucchini to still be a bit crisp. If you make it ahead of time the lemon juice softens the zucchini.
