Creamy Peanut Zucchini Noodle Salad

If you haven’t tried zoodles yet, I’m going to do my best and convince you, it’s time!

Besides being an amazing veggie-packed, nutrient-rich, gluten-free, low-carb, alternative to pasta they also happen to be absolutely delicious and super versatile).

This creamy peanut salad works great as a side dish and can easily be bulked up into a main meal by adding in some shredded chicken or chopped tofu.

  • In a spouted glass cup (or mason jar), combine peanut butter, rice wine vinegar, tamari, water, toasted sesame oil, crushed garlic, ginger and salt. Whisk until everything is well combined.
  • Drizzle the dressing over the zoodles and gently toss together until all of the zoodles have a nice light coating of the dressing.
