How to Make Zucchini Noodles
You will need a spiralizer to create zucchini noodles (zoodles). I like this one from Amazon. Place the zucchini noodles on paper towels on a hard surface. Sprinkle a few pinches of salt throughout. Allow the zucchini noodles to sweat out excess water for at least 30 minutes. Then squeeze out any additional water.

A traditional Greek salad has tomatoes, red onions, kalamata olives, and seasoning. This version is very similar with a few added veggies. I like to toss the salad in unsweetened Green Goddess Salad Dressing. This brand is keto, paleo, and Whole 30 friendly and has no-added-sugar. You can also use my Homemade Keto Ranch Salad Dressing.
