Zucchini + Herb Slaw

Zucchini + Herb Slaw

I threw this recipe together deep in the throes of a summer heat wave as a refreshing side dish. However, I have come to realize that it is an awesome side/condiment/ salad no matter the time of year! Zucchinis are also still (sorta) in season in Toronto so every weekly farm share delivery I get usually has about a pound of zukes.

This is probably one of the easiest dishes you will make all week! I last made it two days ago as a salad base for some baked salmon and it was fresh and tasty and a perfect pairing.


Prep Time: 5 minutes  Cook Time: 2 minutes


  • 1-2 small to medium zucchinis shaved into ribbons ( I used a vegetable peeler but you could use a spiralizer too)

  • juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 tsp organic olive oil

  • handful of chopped fresh herbs such as basil, mint, parsley and/or tarragon

  • sprinkle of sea salt and cracked pepper to taste


  1. Shave zucchini thinly with a vegetable peeler into a medium bowl

  2. Add in lemon juice, oil, herbs and salt and pepper

  3. Lightly toss to coat the zucchini

  4. EAT
