This may be the easiest side salad you will ever make!
When we saw this beautiful 3 ingredient salad from @kitschenista, we knew we had to share it with the community. We love that it comes together in minutes and is packed with so much flavor. If you are looking for a new side salad to add to your lineup, this is it.
The combination of pine nuts and goat cheese with the zucchini (or Italian squash of choice) makes for a beautiful flavor combination. Once combined with the easy seasonings, this is one salad we know you will whip up again and again.
3 Ingredient Zucchini Salad
- 3 Italian squashes
- ¼ cup pine nuts
- goat cheese
- 1-2 cloves garlic
- 1 lemon, juice and zest
- olive oil
- salt + pepper
- Toast pine nuts in a skillet until golden brown. Use a mandolin (CAREFULLY) to slice zucchini into paper-thin ribbons. Sprinkle a bit of salt onto the zucchini and set aside while you prep the rest.
- In a bowl, grate 1-2 cloves garlic with the juice of 1 lemon and a little olive oil. Whisk together. Add in zucchini ribbons and gently toss. Crumble in some goat cheese and pine nuts. Transfer to a serving dish (leaving behind excess water and dressing). Finish off with salt and pepper and lemon zest.
