No matter which type of zucchini you choose, be sure to slice it thinly for the best texture and presentation in this refreshing salad.

You can also experiment with different herbs and cheeses to customize the flavor profile, try swapping the feta cheese for goat cheese or Parmesan for a delicious variation.

How to store leftovers from this recipe?

If you happen to have any leftovers from this shaved zucchini salad (though it's so delicious, leftovers might be rare!), you can easily store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. Keep in mind that the zucchini ribbons may release some moisture as they sit, so you may want to drain any excess liquid before serving leftovers. For best results, store any toasted walnuts separately to maintain their crunchiness. When ready to enjoy, simply give the salad a quick toss to redistribute the flavors and serve it chilled or at room temperature for a refreshing and satisfying Keto-friendly meal.

Recipe Steps

25 min

  • Step 1

    Finely shave the zucchini with either a vegetable peeler or a mandolin (I set the mandoline to ⅛ the inch). Gently combine the zucchini, lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Toss lightly to combine, so the zucchini ribbons don’t break.

  • Step 2

    Marinate for 10 minutes. Place the zucchini in a bowl or plate. Twist the strands to create some circular shapes in the salad.
