Kiwi Zucchini Pasta


This might look complicated, but it’s really simple.

Use a Spiralizer – or “Spiral Slicer” like this (the link below goes to the exact one I have that I bought on amazon and it’s awesome!)  to turn 2 zucchini and one daikon into pasta-like strands.


Set your zucchini and daikon “noodles” aside and create your dressing.  (note- if you don’t have a spiral slicer you could use a food processor to dice the zucchini and diakon, or a mandoline to thinly slice, or a cheese grater, or just a really sharp knife and cut them into thin slices)

For the dressing I used:

3 kiwi
half of an orange
one avocado
sea salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)
one tablespoon of dill (fresh or dried is fine)
a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil 
1 tablespoon of a high quality dijon mustard (this isn’t raw but I added it for that extra spice kick)

You could also add ingredients like cilantro, sundried tomatoes, sesame seeds…feel free to get creative with your dressings – anything you make fresh from scratch is a million times better than a dressing you would buy in a bottle!

Mix the dressing together – I chopped everything together in a bowl with a knife and mixed by hand.

Then toss dressing over the “pasta” and let sit in the fridge for about 30 mins so that the “pasta” has a chance to absorb the dressing.

Spoon your veggie pasta over some greens and enjoy 🙂

My neighbor Matt came in and inhaled sampled a bowl (I seem to be winning the skeptics over) and he loved it 🙂

I rock.
The end.
hahahaha just kidding. I don’t rock that much.  Okay okay, maybe just a little.
It’s pat-yourself-on-the-back Thursday, Kids!
So do it!

OH! Side note – My sister got back from her First Anniversary Celebration in Maui with her husband last night and she brought me a pineapple.  Why she did not bring me an entire pineapple tree, I will never understand.

This pineapple is so fresh you can smell it before you get close to it.

I will be making some raw pineapple ice cream so stay tuned 🙂
