Embrace zucchini season with this healthy Greek Zucchini Noodle Salad. It's fresh and full of flavor with a light Greek dressing. (low carb, gluten free, keto)
Hope you guys are having the best summer. It's hard to believe all the back to school commercials are out and I just spent 2 hours stumbling around Office Depot getting the dreaded school supplies. Glad to have that done!
We are still trying to enjoy every last minute of fresh fruits and vegetables. I love summer cooking because everything is full of fresh, ripe flavor. I dread pumpkins and squash in the fall.
Spiralizing zucchini noodles has sparked a whole new love of zucchini squash for me this summer. I used to only eat them sauteed or in chocolate chip zucchini bread! But now with my handy dandy Vegetti Spiralizer, I can rock these low carb noodles anytime I want.
And I want this Greek Zucchini Noodle Salad over and over again! I think you'll be surprised by how these delicious noodles made out of zucchini can be. They really absorb the Greek dressing and hold a lot of flavor.
I've always been a huge fan of Greek and Mediterranean flavors, especially in salads. It's full of fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, basil and salty olives and feta. It's like the perfect combo! Try this Greek Pasta Salad too.
I tossed it with the simplest Greek dressing but you can also use your favorite brand. I love Tessamae's Dressing and always have it in the fridge.
I hope you love this Greek Zucchini Noodle salad. It's...
- low carb
- gluten free
- paleo / whole30 (if you leave out the feta cheese)

OK, this is it - I am *finally* getting a spiralizer! I can't believe I've gone this long without one. This salad looks phenomenal, so fresh and seasonal and healthy. 🙂
You'll love it Monica!

I think I need your spiralizer. My husband got one for me last Christmas -- but it doesn't do a good job -- and I always end up with bloody fingertips -- OUCH! This is the best kind of summer cooking -- fresh and healthy!
Oh no Lisa, get rid of that thing!
I love my spiralizer too! I'm pretty sure I have turned every vegetable into my house into a noodle at one point. haha! But I will say, I usually go pretty norm and turn them into pasta dishes. I love the idea of using them for a salad like this. Especially with Tessemae's! I love all their dressings - especially the caeser!
Yay, thanks for stopping by Katie!
This salad is perfect! I'm pretty sure anyone with a garden "suffers" from an overabundance of zucchini. Sadly, my container zucchini failed this year. All of my blooms were male, so nothing formed and the darn plant ended up dying. Here's to next year! I'm kind of with you on the squash and pumpkins. Once they're here, I'm excited to work with them, but I'm just not ready for them yet and once August rolls around, it feels like summer is coming to an end *very* quickly. Not to mention the fact that fall produce just doesn't have the vibrancy that spring and summer produce does! Ugh. Now I'm dreading it, too. Lol.
I feel your pain Dana. None of my zucchini worked either - these were from the local market! Not sure what I did wrong.
I love spiralized zoodles and with this fresh dressing and colorful salad, it would be delicious!

Not the dreaded school supply trip already Karen! Ugh! Where did summer go?!
Love this zoodle salad. Greek salad are one of my faves. Can't wait to give this one a try! Once you start zoodling (if that's a word!), it's hard to stop, right?!
I never get enough of these flavors!! And with all the zucchini around - this salad is a must! Pinned!

I love my spiralizer too! I also have tons of garden zucchini so love the idea of using it up in a cool salad like this one!! So not ready for Fall!!
Michelle | The Secret Ingredient Is
So gorgeous! I definitely need to make it this weekend - I've got an overflow of zucchini right now!
ZOODLES! I'm in love with this newfound staple in summer dinners. It's such a refreshing change of pace that will still fulfill your summertime pasta cravings.
