Greek Zoodle Salad

Looking for a fun new way to eat your veggies? My Greek Zoodle Salad is the perfect start. It’s easy to make, packed with nutrients, and has tons of flavor from fresh veggies, cheese, and spices. Eating healthy has never been more simple or delicious!

This recipe was created in partnership with McCormick Spices. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.

As a dietitian, one of the questions I’m often asked is “How do I add flavor my food without adding salt?” The solution is simple: use herbs and spices. Replacing salt, sugar, and fat with spices boosts the flavor while keeping the calories and sodium in check. My Greek Zoodle Salad has no added salt but tons of bold flavor from the McCormick spices thyme, oregano, and black pepper. Spices take veggies up a notch and allow you to eat more delicious good-for-you foods without being worried about sodium or sugar.


A family recipe

The recipe is great for beginner chefs or families wanting to get their kids in the kitchen. My girls LOVE to help make meals and one of their favorite tools is a spiralizer to make “spaghetti” from zucchini or apples. When making Greek Zoodle Salad, let your kiddos help spiralize the noodles, cut the tomatoes, and shake the dressing in a mason jar. And, of course, feel free to modify the recipe to fit your family’s tastes (this means no olives for us).

I love that I can make this salad ahead of time and don’t have to worry about it getting soggy. It’s the perfect salad to bring to a picnic, family gathering, or make as a quick and easy side for dinner. On top of all of this, the left overs make a delicious lunch!
