Summer Zucchini Noodle Salad

Bring on the summer with this fresh and simple zucchini noodle salad!

Best served cold, this recipe is perfect to pack up for your next picnic. Many store-bought pasta salads are covered in heavy cream-based or high sodium dressings.

We’ve kept it light by substituting traditional pasta with a zucchini noodle and adding fresh produce to highlight the large selection of in-season vegetables.

Feel free to switch up the ingredients based off of what’s available at your local grocery store or farmer's market. Enjoy!
