Are you looking for something healthy and delicious to try out for dinner? This is a simple, healthy, and delicious recipe! It’s quick to make & doesn’t require a lot of clean up. I love healthy cooking, but I also love recipes that don’t take a lot of time to prep. Recipes get bonus points from me when they don’t create a lot of dirty dishes. This recipe meets all of the above criteria.
I also like that this dish can be served alone, as a side or paired with a protein of choice. You can easily make it vegan or vegetarian.
Be sure to wash your vegetables before slicing them.

We will be having this with dinner tonight with some baked chicken.
I used a spiralizer to make the noodles.
2 tomatoes diced
2 small cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons of basil
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Fresh ground salt and pepper to taste
Optional: diced mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup diced onion
* I was out of mozzarella so I diced two slices of Munster cheese. I was out of onion so I omitted it & it’s still delicious.
Spiralize the zucchini, and chop veggies and cheese.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir. Refrigerate to allow ingredients to marinate.
Delicious cold, or gently heat in a pan. Great served with cold or warm baked chicken (or protein of choice).
* Don’t overcook the Zoodles if you are heating. Zucchini gets soft fairly quickly, so monitor as you heat to ensure you are maintaining the desired texture/consistency.
