HOW TO MAKE KETO ZUCCHINI SALAD?

SAUTEED ZUCCHINI

I love this salad because of flavorful zucchini! Zucchini don’t have intense taste or flavor, and that’s the reason why they are so versatile and you can use them in so many ways in all your savory and sweet dishes. The trick to make them delicious is in seasoning and the way of cooking.

Zucchini for this recipe you can prepare in a pan or a skillet on the stove or outside on the grill! If you prepare them on a grill, that could be a real treat! 

Just heat the olive oil and sauté zucchini cut in cubes. Season them with salt, pepper, powdered garlic, ground paprika and turmeric. And cook zucchini on a hot oil, for few minutes only. They should stay al dente, don’t kill their soul with endless cooking!

PREPARE FRESH VEGGIES

Other veggies I love to use for this salad are just fresh tomato and onion. They complement to seasoned and cooked zucchini wonderfully.

FETA CHEESE AND SALAD LOW CARB DRESSING

To elevate the whole story, just add some feta cheese on top. Feta cheese is always great in this type of salads. I love to drizzle everything with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with crushed chili. It’s lovely to add some lemon juice or balsamic vinegar too. In the case you don’t have feta cheese, any goat or sheep cheese will be good substitute.

HOW TO MEAL PREP ZUCCHINI SALAD?

My recommendation is to prepare a double batch of these zucchini, especially if you have a possibility to grill them during the weekend. After cooking or grilling set them aside chilling for an hour and then you can store them in a plastic or glass airtight container for at least 4 days in the fridge. Take the amount of prepared zucchini that you need, add fresh onion, tomato and feta cheese, and enjoy! It will be nourishing and flavorful salad or a side dish every day. 

You can combine it with other fresh veggies and boiled eggs in a jar and bring it with you to school, work, camping, glamping, picnic, or whatever! 🙂

For dressing use salt, pepper and olive oil as a dressing, and if you wish you can add some lemon juice, apple cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar. I love adding a pinch of crushed chili on top to make it even more tasty and to boost my immunity! 🙂
