This Garden Fresh Zoodle Salad is adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod. I love how much of the garden you’re eating when you eat this salad. I especially love what a tasty way it is to use up zucchini.
Let’s face it. It’s August. There’s lots of zucchini around. Even if you or none of your friends have a garden, the farmers’ markets are overflowing with them. So, here’s a fresh way to enjoy them and lots of the other fresh bounty of the season.
Do use the freshest peaches and cream corn you can find for the corn bit. You’ll be delighted with the sweetness and the lack of needing to cook it. For me, the additional colour of the tomatoes, the crunch of sugar snap peas, the bite from two kinds of onion plus the tang of herbed Chèvre takes an already fabulous salad to yet another level.
This is a keeper recipe and I hope you savour it all.Print
