Zucchini Power Salad


Zucchini Power Salad- spiralized zucchini with edamame, quinoa and avocado.  Protein and vitamins…filling and nutritious.

Sorry I haven’t posted food inspo in a while!!  I will put up some of the other recent recipes I have made, soon–

  • Slow cooker spicy Indian curry lentils
  • Spicy Thai curry veggies
  • Cheesy potato, squash and tomato casserole…

I used this recipe from for the zucchini salad but added quinoa to make it more filling/a complete meal.

Use this shredder ($8 at Target) to make the spiral zucchini strands (and chop them up a bit if you don’t want it to be so spaghetti-like)


  1. Cook 1 cup of quinoa (I like to use a rice cooker for this) and let cool.
  2. Microwave 1 cup of frozen shelled edamame and let cool.
  3. Spiralize 2 medium sized zucchinis after washing and removing the ends (removing the skin with a peeler first is optional).
  4. Chop up 1 medium sized white or red onion.
  5. Dice one large avocado.
  6. Toss all ingredients together, other than avocado, and mix.
  7. Add the diced avocado.
  8. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  9. Drizzle with light balsamic vinaigrette.
