This Asian Zucchini Noodle Salad is the perfect healthy and tasty dish to use up that garden zucchini! Loaded with shredded chicken, sliced veggies, and drizzled with a flavor-packed homemade Thai peanut lime dressing that’s the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, and tangy!
One of my favorite ways to use up that summer garden zucchini is turning them into noodles or oodles of zoodles! If you’re looking for some ideas on some zoodle dishes, these Mongolian Beef Zoodles, Kung Pao Zoodles and Teriyaki Chicken Zoodles are a few of our favorites.
Another dish that happens a lot around here is this Asian Zucchini Noodle Salad with Thai Peanut Lime Dressing. I am completely obsessed with anything with Thai flavors and this salad is full of that signature sweet, spicy, tangy and savory combo.
It’s also light, colorful, crunchy, and a super delicious way to use up some garden zucchini. A summertime favorite and the best part? It comes together quickly and is super easy to customize with your favorite veggies.
ASIAN ZUCCHINI NOODLE SALAD WITH THAI PEANUT LIME DRESSING
In addition to the zucchini noodles, I loaded this salad with:
- red cabbage
- bell pepper
- snap peas
- edamame beans
- Thai basil (feel free to leave out if you can’t find it)
- chopped peanuts
Add grilled or rotisserie chicken or shrimp to make it an all in one meal or leave it as is for Meatless Monday.
Everything gets tossed together with a flavor-packed homemade peanut dressing. So simple to whip up plus it’s got the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, tangy and salty.
Just combine some creamy peanut butter, sesame oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic, ginger, honey and a little bit of chili garlic sauce (or Sriracha) for that extra kick of heat.
You can totally adjust the amount of chili sauce to your liking or leave it out completely if you’re sensitive to heat.
