I’m the girlfriend you text when you’re scratching your head reading labels in the grocery store, the confidante you blurt your “I can’t tell anyone else!” bathroom shenanigans to and the handy science nerd who comes through with the best cost-cutting, time-saving health tips you don’t know how you ever lived without.


If you’re looking for a super simple and delicious way to include more zucchini into your diet, this refreshing Mint and Zucchini salad is a great place to start. 

The fresh mint mixed with raw zucchini topped with feta and drizzled with a lemony vinaigrette makes this salad a perfectly refreshing and nourishing salad the entire family can enjoy. 

Zucchini Salad

When are zucchinis in season?

Although zucchini’s prime season ranges from May to August, most grocery stores carry this vegetable year-round (yay!). So, while I generally tend to make this salad during the warm summer months, it’s also a great pick-me-up during those dreary winter months. 

Oh, and did I mention it takes less than 10 minutes to put together and only requires 5 ingredients?! 

Don’t have a spiralizer?

While I personally love using a spiralizer for this recipe, it isn’t a necessity. You can also use a traditional vegetable peeler or simply use a box grater. Note: I love the OXO Good Grips 3-Blade Hand-Held Spiralizer. It’s easy to use and doesn’t take up much space in my kitchen cabinet.

If using a vegetable peeler, thinly peel the zucchini into thin ribbons and then slice, lengthwise, into long strips.

If using a box grater, just run your zucchini along your grater (recommend grating over the large holes) until you’ve shredded the amount of desired zucchini.
