  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

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!
