Chopped Mediterranean Zucchini Salad

Lately I have been on quite a salad kick. There have been breakfast salads with poached eggs, lots of lunch salads packed with leftover grilled veggies and quinoa, dinner salads stuffed with BBQ chicken and corn and peaches, and lots of new and yummy salad side dishes like today’s chopped zucchini salad. It’s an easy combination – matchstick zucchini and squash, crunchy red peppers, carrots, red onion, Kalamata olives, pepperoncinis, and a simple garlicky dressing to round things out. It’s a great salad to bring to a picnic or gathering since it holds up well without wilting.

    I think the nutritional info for the Mediterranean Zucchini Salad is for another salad. Would like to know nutritional I of for this salad. Thanks!

    I think the title both “Toasted Oat and Roasted Strawberry Parfaits” and the nutritional information are wrong. Hope your day gets better!

      All fixed! Thanks for letting me know.
