Zucchini Noodle “Zoodle” Salad

This is a perfect, light and healthy salad, great for barbeques or potluck parties. Add grilled shrimp for protein, or serve along side your protein of choice.

Ingredients

  • 4 large zucchinis
  • 1 cup cherub tomatoes, sliced into quarters
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 cobs of corn, cooked, corn kernels removed
  • 1/2 cup red or orange bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp pesto sauce (homemade or store bought)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. You must have a tool to spiral cut the zucchini. You can buy one at any home store. Cut off the ends of each zucchini and spiral into a large bowl. They should look like noodles.
  2. Add the tomatoes, cheese, bell pepper, red onion and corn to bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the pesto sauce and olive oil to create a dressing.
  4. Pour dressing over zoodle mixture, and with your hands, gently toss to coat.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  6. Add extra grated parmesan cheese on top when serving, if desired.

Kale Salad

Recently, I ordered a kale salad from a couple different restaurants, both of which serve them with Lacianto Kale, cut into thin ribbons, with a lemon-like vinaigrette, a cheese and something sweet.  They were both delicious, and both slighlty different. So I decided to make my own rendition of it.

Kale Salad

Lacianto kale has dark blue-green leaves with a slightly wrinkled and firm texture. Its taste is slightly sweeter than the curly kind. Add the lemon vinaigrette, and mix'ns and you have a lovely, healthy, tasty salad.

  • 1/4 cup gala apple, sliced thin and into sticks
  • 2-3 tbsp blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 slices of cooked bacon, chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp honey
  • Dash of salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, add the kale. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour desired amount of dressing on kale, and use your hands to coat the leaves evenly.
  4. Add the apple, blue cheese and bacon. Gently toss to combine.
  5. Serve! It's that simple.
