Raw zucchini fig radish salad
This stunning summer salad is a feast for the eyes and the belly. It is amazing on those slow, hot summer days when you cannot even think about turning the oven on or bothering to make a complicated meal. Hydrating zucchini, soft sweet figs and crisp radish come together with a super simple dressing to let the clean ingredients speak for themselves.
what you'll need...
2-3 medium zucchini, yellow or green
4 radishes, sliced thin
2 fresh figs
handful sunflower sprouts
fresh lime, juiced
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
pinch of pink Himalayan salt or smoked salt
Spiralize the zucchini on the small noodle setting into a large salad bowl. Cut or break up the zucchini noodles so they aren't crazy long. If you don't have a spiralizer you can cut the zucchini into fries, half circles or julienne. Thinly slice the radish and figs into discs. Squeeze fresh lime juice over salad, add olive oil and salt to taste. Toss until evenly coated.
serves 4 side salads or 2 main size salads for a light lunch or dinner.
