Ingredients

Servings  6  

  • 5 cups grated zucchini (from approximately 2 medium-large zucchini)
  • 2 medium cucumbers, peeled and chopped into bite-size pieces (about 4 cups)
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped into bite-size pieces (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 small red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1/4 cup pitted black olives, like Kalamata, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground Black pepper
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil OR
  • 2 Tbsp safflower oil
  • 2 Tbsp reduced-fat feta cheese crumbles

Directions

Tip: Click on step to mark as complete.

  1. Place a box grater into a large bowl and grate enough zucchini for 5 cups.
  2. Prepare the remaining vegetables: Peel the cucumbers and chop into bite-size pieces; add to the bowl. Chop the tomatoes into bite-size pieces, slice the red onion, and finely chop the olives. Add everything into the bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, add the dressing ingredients: dried oregano, black pepper, vinegar, and oil. Whisk together with a fork. Pour dressing onto the salad and use a spatula or tongs to toss to combine together.
  4. Serve and sprinkle feta cheese on top of each salad portion.

Tip: Serving size 1 2/3 cups

Cooking Tip: Any food that is naturally salty, like olives and feta cheese in this recipe, bring enough sodium to a dish than extra salt isn’t needed.

Keep it Healthy: A new delicious trend is substituting zucchini for noodles, called “zoodles.” For this salad, a grater is used to turn the zucchini into small pieces. If you enjoy this, consider investing in a spiralizer, which turns the zucchini into long noodles that can be used in place of pasta for recipes like spaghetti.

Tip: When using a small quantity of olives like 1/3 cup, it’s cheaper to first look at your grocery store’s salad bar or even olive bar versus buying an entire jar. Compare the prices of both and choose the cheaper option.
