Zucchini Noodles Salad
With the mercury soaring, all you want to eat is a salad. This zucchini noodles salad is very easy to assemble and doesn't need too many ingredients. It's surprisingly very crunchy and so refreshing. Zucchini is such a versatile vegetable. I love playing around with it. If you don't have a spirilizer, you can chop zucchini into juliens. I would have loved to use fresh red chili but since I didn't have it, I used a green one. The dressing may seem very thick but don't thin it. Very patiently mix it with the noodles. Zucchini will slowly release water and this will help the dressing to cover the vegetables completely. The advantage is that the dressing sticks to the noodles and you are not left with a soupy mass. We enjoyed it with home made olive bread.
