Zucchini is almost as versatile as broccoli. Just slice it, dice it, saute it, fry it, bake it and voila…kitchen miracles can happen! I really am not a huge fan of cooked spinach because it reminds me of the canned variety I had to eat as a kid. But fresh spinach with just slight wilting is amazing!

The addition of the hot noodles and roasted zucchini brings this salad to another level. And, don’t forget the Avocado Dressing for an amazing taste sensation!

ENJOY!
