Tahini Zucchini "Pasta" Salad
Looking for a fun way to use up your zucchini harvest? Here’s a quick, easy way to create a no cook, craving satisfying side or meal with zucchini as the star ingredient.
Serves 1 as main dish, 2-3 as side dish.
⅓ c tahini
2 tbs. Vinegar, apple cider or red wine
2 tsp. Soy sauce or Braggs aminos
1 green onion
3 medium zucchinis
Handful of basil
Lemon Thyme (marjoram and french thyme work well too)
Start by preparing your dressing: combine the tahini, vinegar, soy sauce, juice from lemon, and your green onion finely chopped. Emulsify by vigorous whisking, or using a blender.
Cut your zucchini into noodles. You can use a spiralizer, but we used a potato peeler for flat and wide “noodles”. Combine your zucchini noodles with about ½ of the dressing and gently stir. Add salt and pepper to taste, and more dressing if desired.
De-stem and rough chop your basil and thyme. Sprinkle and stir in and use as garnish.
