Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk lemon juice, garlic, Dijon mustard, honey, basil, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Drizzle in olive oil and whisk until vinaigrette emulsifies; set aside.

  • Spiralize the zucchini into noodles using the thin blade. The strands will be very long, so cut them into manageable lengths with kitchen shears. Place zucchini noodles in a large bowl and add cilantro.

  • Pour the vinaigrette over the noodles right before serving. Toss to gently coat. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Sprinkle with pine nuts and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes:

Zucchini starts to release water and gets soggy when you add salt or acid (such as lemon), so toss the noodles just before serving.

Zucchini noodles will keep fresh for days (no seasoning or sauce), so go ahead and make them in advance, and keep in a covered container or zip-top bag until you need them.

I would cut back on the lemon juice the next time I make this. and you can add a lot more squash for the amount of dressing or I just used small squash. Read More

It was very good and a nice unique way to serve veggies. There was too much lemon causing a bit of bitterness, so next time I'll put 1/2 the quantity (at the most). When I added the dressing to the zoodles, I played around until I saw that you need very little to get a nice flavour without being overbearing. I recommend spooning the dressing in, a bit at a time. My husband thought it was very good, too, and I'll be making it again! Read More
