Zoodles (zucchini noodles) are all the rage and I keep looking for new ways to prepare them. I decided to combine my love of Greek salad with the zoodles and came up with this recipe. A great alternative to high-carb pasta salads!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut zucchini into noodle-shaped strands using a spiralizing tool. Place "zoodles" in a large bowl and top with cucumber, tomatoes, olives, red onion, and feta cheese.

  • Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until dressing is smooth; pour over "zoodle" mixture and toss to coat. Marinate salad in refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You may wish to cut noodles in half to make them more manageable. After putting zucchini through spirilizer, pile on top of a cutting board and cut down center of pile with a large knife. You can also spiral cut cucumber instead of chopping.

we really enjoyed this salad. it was a little labour intensive as i don't have a zoodler or what ever the gadget is to make zoodles. i did it by hand with a veggie peeler and a very sharp knife to cut the strands. very refreshing flavours. next time i will make the dressing way ahead of time to let the oregano infuse with the oil and perhaps add a little red wine vinegar for a little extra flavour! thanks for sharing your great recipe LilSnoo!

This was just ok for us. Although we cared for the dressing by itself once it was on the salad it was only ok. We may have again when we have a lot of zucchini to use. It was pretty though when using the zoodler and super fans of zucchini will most likely love this salad. Read More

We LOVED this salad! I did reduce the oregano to 1/2 teaspoon per our personal preference and I didn't have kalamata olives on hand so I subbed black olives which worked out great. So fresh tasting! The whole family gobbled this up...a definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Don't change a thing - it's perfect as is! I made this tonight to pair with baked lemon chicken and it was incredible. The longer it marinates in the dressing the better. Per the recipe's recommendation I used extra tomatoes as well as extra olives. Will make again! Read More

Everyone in my family - including my 6 year old - loved this recipe. It seems to release a lot of water once assembled. Even over the course of our dinner so maybe 20 minutes the remaining salad in the serving bowl was swimming in liquid. However the flavor was really excellent. Read More

I cooked my zoodles in boiling water for 3 minutes to soften them up and make them more pasta-like. I wish I left them cold though because they were a little too mushy. I also used black olives and diced tomatoes with basil and oregano. I will definitely try making this again! Read More

I made this today used my Vegettie to make the noodles. Followed the recipe pretty close although I only used one zucchini and I did add some quartered cherry tomatoes. I like to make my own Greek salad dressing but it's made with the same flavors called for in the recipe oregano etc. I was a little nervous about this because I've never eaten zucchini raw before but this was outstanding! I would think a person could just pour a little bottled Greek salad dressing on this if they wanted to. This was so good I could hardly stay out of it DH tried it when he came home and loved it as well. Thanks for a low carb healthy and easy salad. Read More

A fresh, tasty salad that you just feel good about eating! I just bought a "Vegetti" and couldn't wait to try it out. I just happened to have all of the ingredients for this on-hand, and it was a nice side salad to our pizza margherita tonight. I'll be making this one all summer long! Read More
