Greek courgetti salad

    30 min

    Instead of eating pasta salads for lunch, I keep looking for new ideas for spiral vegetable salads. I decided to combine my love of Greek salad with courgetti and came up with this recipe.

    5 people made this

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 courgettes, sliced into strands using a spiraliser
    • 1/4 cucumber, chopped
    • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved, or more to taste
    • 10 pitted olives, halved, or more to taste
    • 40g thinly sliced red onion
    • 60g feta cheese, crumbled
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste

    Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:15min chilling  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Place courgetti in a large bowl and top with cucumber, tomatoes, olives, red onion and feta cheese.
    2. Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper together in a bowl until dressing is smooth; pour over courgetti mixture and toss to coat. Marinate salad in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.

    we really enjoyed this salad. it was a little labour intensive as i don't have a zoodler or what ever the gadget is to make zoodles. i did it by hand with a veggie peeler and a very sharp knife to cut the strands. very refreshing flavours. next time i will make the dressing way ahead of time to let the oregano infuse with the oil and perhaps add a little red wine vinegar for a little extra flavour! thanks for sharing your great recipe LilSnoo!  -  04 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We LOVED this salad! I did reduce the oregano to 1/2 teaspoon, per our personal preference, and I didn't have kalamata olives on hand, so I subbed black olives, which worked out great. So fresh tasting! The whole family gobbled this up...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing.  -  23 Mar 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Don't change a thing - it's perfect as is! I made this tonight to pair with baked lemon chicken, and it was incredible. The longer it marinates in the dressing, the better. Per the recipe's recommendation, I used extra tomatoes as well as extra olives. Will make again!  -  18 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
