  • Cut zucchini into “pasta” using a mandoline, spiralizer, or julienne peeler
  • I used a mandoline but my next purchase will be a julienne peeler…easier to clean and less likely to slice off a finger!
  • Add zucchini “pasta” to a large bowl with the olives, basil, onion and tomatoes
  • Mix together olive oil and lemon juice, pour on top of vegetables.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • You could eat it immediately or place it in the refrigerator for an hour to let the flavors combine
  • Top with hemp seeds and enjoy 🙂


What’s your favorite go-to meal when it’s too hot to cook? 🙂
