I came up with Mediterranean Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles because I was in the mood for a Mediterranean or Greek style dish and I didn’t want to overload on carbs. The recipe turned out perfectly. I love the kalamata olives and feta cheese combined with the shrimp. My favorite part of this dish is the Tzatziki sauce. I purchased my sauce at Costco for about $6. I love it. I drizzled a tablespoon or two over the dish prior to serving. Tzatziki sauce is a cucumber yogurt style dip. It is typically served at Greek restaurants. I love it because it tastes amazing and is low in calories and carbs. I can put the sauce on just about anything!
