Let's start with the fact that this simple salad of zucchini zucchini is a wildly useful. Zucchini, sliced in the shape of noodles are practically raw, which allows you to save all vitamins and useful substances, and the spicy sauce, which combines multiple healthy ingredients, notably paints them initially bland taste. In General, it is not only useful, but also tasty, so this salad can be offered even to those who and not think about dieting, healthy eating, and similar things: most likely, they will also be able to appreciate it.

“Spaghetti” from zucchini zucchini with feta cheese and pesto sauce Ingredients 2 servings
  • 1 medium courgette or zucchini
  • 70 g soft cheese
  • a few sprigs of chives or green onions
for pesto:
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • a few sprigs of cilantro
  • 3 tbsp Flaxseed oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • salt
  • black pepper
For this recipe you can use as zucchini and regular zucchini, as long as they were not potjazhelevshie, ripe, hard seeds and bitter flesh. For aesthetic and other reasons, I recommend zucchini, but the final choice will leave you. Whichever pub you choose, slice it with a mandolin, food processor or, like me, an ordinary sharp knife in the shape of noodle is a little thinner than half an inch. Omit “spaghetti” from zucchini in boiling water just for a couple seconds, then drain them in a colander, rinse with cold water and leave to drain.


Combine in a blender the garlic, cilantro, Flaxseed oil, lemon juice and half flax seeds, and season with salt and pepper and run until smooth. Several councils. Those who don't like cilantro, you can substitute Basil or dill. If the taste of Flaxseed oil seems too strong, half of this oil can replace the olive. Linseed oil and seeds should look in departments of a healthy diet, Superfoods stores or ordered via the Internet, for example – flax seeds, flax oil. Finally, in addition to black pepper for greater good can take a little bit of ground Chile. When the sauce is ready, pour it to your “spaghetti” from zucchini and mix everything well.

Let the zucchini marinate for ten minutes, then arrange on a plate. Garnish each portion with slices of feta, drizzle with the same marinade or oil and top with a sprinkle of finely chopped chives (you can substitute green onions) and the remaining flax seeds. This salad should be prepared just before eating to “spaghetti” from zucchini did not have time soak and lose the form, and post the cheese can be replaced by tofu or not to exclude from the recipe.published
