Zucchini Basil Salad with Avocado Lime Sauce


A perfect summer salad, made with fresh basil, zucchini, sprouts and cilantro, tossed with a lemony avocado sauce and topped with a selection of cherry tomatoes and hemp seeds! Sooo good!

Let us begin!

For the salad you will need:

– 3 zucchinis, spiralized or grated

– 1 1/2 cup sprouts

– 1 handful cilantro

– 1 handful fresh basil

– 1 to 2 cups assorted cherry tomatoes

– 2 tbsp. hemp seeds


For the avocado lime sauce you will need:

– 1/2 avocado

– 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

– 1 lime

– dash of red pepper flakes, cayenne or peppercorns

In a small bowl, mash the avocado, nutritional yeast and pepper flakes together. Squeeze the like juice over and mix in. If the lime is large, start by using half instead of the whole one. You can always use the rest to squeeze on top of the salad later.

Spiralize the zucchinis into a large bowl (or use a grater if you don’t have a spiralizer)  2013-07-30_12-07-56_143

Toss in the sprouts and cilantro, then mix in the avocado lime sauce. Top with the fresh basil, cherry tomatoes and hemp seeds. If you have extra lime at the end like I did, gradually add it into the salad until you get the desired taste.


That’s it! An easy, fresh salad, bursting with color and flavor!


Have a bite! The fresh basil mixed in with the greens and the avocado lemon sauce is sooo good!
