Note from Joy: I didn't mind that the sun woke me up this morning because it's a wonderful sign of spring! As the temp warms up it's the ideal time to start adding more raw dishes to your meal plan. I absolutely LOVE this dish from guest blogger Bianca and hope you do too!
Spring is *finally* starting to make its presence known, and with warmer weather comes a desire to eat lighter, as Mother Natures bounty enters the abundance phase of her cycle.
In The Vitality Kitchen we love change, which is why we change our menu every two weeks; this zucchini salad was a runaway hit when we debut it, as people were ready to shake off the heavy stews and soups of winter in favour of lighter salads.
Zucchini spirals and quinoa act as a vehicle for our pistachio mint dressing, and we used large leaves of mint to brighten every bite- added bonus, no need to chop the herbs! To garnish this salad we used raw pistachios, we even had a client call us genius for this combination of flavour.
While we dont claim to be genius we ARE food lovers, and this salad is a food lovers dream!
