Made this today for lunch. Another salad with "zucchini pasta" that is so easy to make with a spiral slicer. I love this kitchen gadget.
But if you don't have one you can easily make your own zucchini pasta by using a vegetable peeler
such as this one. Just make slices of the zucchini and if you want them thinner, use a pizza cutter when you're done to make them as wide or thin as you want. Zucchini makes such good pasta because it has the consistency of an al dente cooked pasta, and the taste is so similar as well.
So here's the recipe for my lunch today:
Zucchini Pasta and Ham Salad
1 cup zucchini "pasta" (for me that was about 1/2 of a medium small zucchini)
1 oz. deli ham cut up
1 mozzarella cheese stick, cut into small cubes
2 slices dill sandwich sliced pickles (Claussen), chopped
1 tsp. Real bacon bits
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Garlic flavored red wine vinegar
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
On dinner plate combine zucchini pasta, ham pieces, mozzarella cubes, pickles and bacon bits. Toss together. Drizzle over this, olive oil, and sprinkle with red wine vinegar. Sprinkle parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder and salt and pepper over all and toss again.
