Do you know that a true Greek salad doesn’t have lettuce in it? The popular version served in American restaurants adds lettuce to bulk it up and make it more meal like, but a true Greek version leaves it out. I love Greek salads but admittedly, I am in it for the calamata olives and the feta cheese. I am a big salty fan and love the tangy bite they both add to the salad. So when thinking up a salad to make for dinner recently, I decided to go heavy on my favorite salty flavors and use them to top a big bowl of spiralized cucumbers! Have you jumped on the spiralizing trend yet? I got a mini-spiralizer for Christmas and have been thinking up so many ways to use it. I think this Spiralized Greek Salad was a great way to inaugurate my new tool into my kitchen!

greeksalad3This salad is so healthy and light and you could definitely customize it in so many ways! Want to serve it as a meal? Add chicken or salmon! Want to take it to a potluck? Toss in some linguini and make it a pasta salad! Don’t love feta like I do? Add some fresh mozzarella! I lightly dressed the salad with a lemon vinaigrette because I love lemon, but you could use your favorite Greek dressing if you’d prefer.

greeksalad1I hope you try this Spiralized Greek Salad soon! I think you will love the fresh flavors as much as we did!

    It depends on the size of your zucchini, but if they are large you can probably plan on one adult per zucchini, if you are eating this as a meal, or two if you are eating it as a side dish with something else!
