This Easy Spiralized Salad with Blueberries and Feta is a deliciously refreshing dish. It’s a fruit and vegetable salad that combines sweet with savoury, and can be put together in minutes.
EASY SPIRALIZED ZUCCHINI SALAD
For me spiralizing vegetables always adds an interesting and fun dimension to a dish. This easy spiralized salad really wouldn’t be the same if I chose to chop the zucchini. In fact raw zucchini is best served in its spiralized form. It’s light, delicate and infused with the flavours of the zingy dressing.
And that’s the best thing about spiralizing. All this huge courgetti surface area gets coated in the dressing and all the other delicious ingredients you’ve used.
Chopping and serving the zucchini raw simply wouldn’t work as well!
I am sure I’ve said this before but spiralizing often takes less time than chopping. This may come as a surprise but it is absolutely true. And don’t just take my word for it, go ahead and spiralize a zucchini!
Here is how you make this sparalized zucchini salad in just a few simple steps.
Start by preparing the dressing.
Then spiralize the zucchini.
Finish off by scattering the blueberries, feta and walnuts over the zoodles and drizzling with the dressing. Season to taste and tuck in!

Blueberries are in season at the moment so I am making the most of it by using them in a salad recipe. They have a delicious, subtle sweetness that goes really well with savoury ingredients, such as feta cheese, for example. The blueberries tone down the sharpness of the feta really nicely. The refreshing minty notes running through this salad complete this sweet and savoury summery offering.
There are so many ways to enjoy blueberries, other than just as a super delicious and nutritious snack. Or making a spiralized salad for that matter.
