It looks like we have a heat wave ahead of us! When the weather is hot and humid who feels like cooking??? Try this light, refreshing “pasta” instead! No stove required
Simple Raw Zucchini Pasta
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup kalamata olives, chopped
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
juice from 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons hemp seeds
-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!
