Avocado Zucchini Lime Salad

I was just looking through recipes that I had made and came across this one.  I think I only made it once but I remember how good it was.  I don't know why I didn't post it back then, but here it is for now.  I think I have all the ingredients on hand too, so this will maybe be my lunch tomorrow along with  some meat.


1/2 zucchini -- made into spaghetti "pasta" with spiral slicer (if you don't have a spiral slicer, you can just slice ribbons of zucchini with a vegetable peeler).
1 avocado -- peeled and chopped
1 roma tomato -- chopped
1 teaspoon  minced garlic -- (or more to your liking)
1 tablespoon  cilantro -- (or 2 tbsp fresh)
1 shallot -- chopped
1/2 tablespoon  extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon  lime juice

In medium serving bowl, combine zucchini pasta, chopped avocado, chopped tomato, minced garlic, chopped onion, and toss together. Drizzle olive oil over all and then lime juice and toss again.  (I did not really measure for either the oil or the lime.  I'm guessing at these amounts.  If you start with these measurements and add more if you like, you can judge for yourself how much you want.

  1. So unusual and sounds tasty too.

  2. One half a zucchini sounds like such a small amount when it serves three. Looks yummy though!

    1. It was a big zucchini! I probably need to make this again and actually list the measurement in weight or something.

  3. Did u cook the zucchini?

  4. This is delicious I have made it several times. I don't measure any of the ingredients and I add a lot more zucchini. Thanks for this recipe..
