This delicious Spiralized Summer Zucchini Salad comes from the Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook by Sarah Fragoso. I love the flavor and texture of the raw zucchini in this dish. The lemon dressing for this salad is very light and tasty, but I love it even more drizzled with a little of my Favorite Salad Dressing. Adding the extra dressing gave this salad the flavor that it needed to make it sing.
