We love a good salad in general, but especially love when the recipe is an easy one to do!

Today we are sharing this recipe creation from one of our Women of Today community members, Melissa Chambliss.

Melissa told us about a raw zucchini salad she came up with when she was looking to see what she could make with the ingredients she had on hand, hey, we’ve all been there before! It’s fresh, quick, and checks all the boxes for taste.

Give this one a try if you have never tried raw zucchini because it is a must-try!
