Mealthy Tip

Walnuts or pine nuts would be great alternates to the almonds, just make sure to toast them first for the beat flavor.

This salad changed my life. Literally. I'd never really sung the praises of raw zucchini, but now I most certainly do. The thin spiralized zucchini slices paired with the mint, basil, and almonds are perfectly complimented by the honey-lemon dressing. Once I started eating this salad I couldn't stop. Next time I might venture into the wild by trying the salad with some pistachios!

We grow fresh mint in your yard, and I love using it in this salad! The almond adds a nice crunch too. This is a really easy, simple salad.

Perfect spring "pasta" and great crunch with the almonds. I've made this with ribbons and using the spaghetti blade. I also use just two tablespoons of lemon juice instead of 1/4 cup.

I used toasted pine nuts and it worked perfectly. Just seemed like that was a better pick since I also used basil pesto made with pine nuts.

Mint and basil work so well together in this dish. I cut a chiffonade of basil and tossed it in with the zucchini ribbons. I also used toasted pine nuts instead of almonds.
