Yogalicious – Zucchini Ribbon Salad

July 22, 2012

Halfmoon - Yogalicious – Zucchini Ribbon Salad

At Halfmoon, we love to cook. We also love a lean, mean and green salad.

We originally found this recipe on Pinterest. It is one of the most perfect summer salads out there. While it’s not ours, it was created by Marie from Proud Italian Cook, it is delicious. We hope you like it as much as we do.

Zucchini Ribbon Salad

Ingredients:

  • Arugula
  • Zucchini
  • Feta
  • Toasted Nuts (we like it with slivered almonds)
  • Olive Oil
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Dijon Mustard
  • A Crushed Garlic Clove
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Oregano

Directions:

The Dressing

1. Add 3 parts olive oil and 1 part red wine vinegar. Add dijon, crushed garlic, salt, pepper and oregano to taste. You could also buy a nice lemony salad dressing instead.

The Salad

  1. To create the zucchini ribbons, cut off the ends of your zucchini. Then use a vegetable peeler to cut thin lengthwise strips of zucchini. When you get to the seeds, rotate the zucchini and keep peeling. You should end up with lots of thin strips and a rectangle shaped zucchini core.
  2. Coat either a stove top grill or saute pan with a small amount of olive oil. Cook the zucchini strips for a couple of minutes and then let them cool completely.
  3. Toss the arugula in the dressing (see above). Then lay the zucchini strips on top, toss in the feta and sprinkle the toasted nuts on top.
  4. Drizzle a little more of the dressing on top.

Finding my inner voice is a journey I’m continuing to navigate. Like many of you, it’s been a process of self-reflection and self-learning. It has been interesting, fun, challenging, and sometimes absolutely exhausting. It is an act of returning to myself and a process of going inward.

Massage Therapy is an easy and feel good modality that helps treat soft tissue trauma in our body. This can be as microscopic as an adhesion in our skeletal muscle tissue that is causing pain, referral pain or a headache, and as obvious as a muscle stuck in contracture that causes what we refer to as a knot that seems to roll under your touch. We put our bodies through a lot, and physical stress like working out or even the physical stress from our jobs (whether it’s sitting all day or moving), as well as mental and emotional stress, can store itself in our bodies as tension.
