Zucchini Salad with Fresh Basil and Pine Nuts


I absolutely LOVE this salad! It works great as a side dish, or as a complete meal. It’s super fast and easy to make plus, it is FULL of nutrition and fiber.

It Is snowing like crazy here and I am freezing,  so beside me is a cup of hot chocolate-coffee.

I’d rather be here 😉


Well, since the beach is not within my reach I’m going to listen to some music that will make it hot in here, and who better to do that than The Red Hot Chili Peppers singing Around The World? I am warm already!

What You Will Need:

6 Zucchini, washed and shredded

1 Bunch Fresh Basil, chopped

2 Large Lemons, juiced

1/4 C Raw Pine Nuts

Parmesan Cheese

Salt to taste

Now that you have everything prep your Mis en Place 🙂


In a glass bowl, add the zucchini, and basil


Next add the lemon juice, and pine nuts. (The acid in the lemon juice will soften the zucchini strips.)


Cover the bowl and shake well.

Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan, and salt to taste.

There you go! It is that easy.

Cheers to another waistline friendly meal!!!
