Shredded Zucchini Salad with Lime and Herb dressing


Hello all! Sorry for the lack of posts. Rest assured I’ve been following my salad challenge, and feel clean and healthy. I hope you do too. This is a simple post with fresh organic ingredients. It took less than 15 minutes to prep, and packs well even when dressed. We like recipes like this. Once again, adapt, adapt, adapt. 

I’m trying to shed some winter pounds, keep healthy, and eat light and fresh meals. I always think fruits and veggies should be the star of every meal….plus I think most people don’t get enough. I also think a lot of vegetarians need to up their veggie intake too. 

I’ll keep the salad challenge going, but let me know your favorite dressings, or salad recipes. I’m going to post two salads a week from now on. The rest of my blogging will be veggie packed foods that I love. 

Thanks for reading!
