California “Spaghetti” Salad with NO PASTA!

Looking for a tasty – healthy summer side dish?  Here you go, this is delicious!  It was so delicious Father’s Day that I had to share!!!  I’ve gotta give credit where credit is due, I can’t claim this creation, this is my sister Sarah’s recipe.


  • 1 pint Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Cucumber, large
  • 1 Orange bell pepper, medium
  • 1 Yellow bell pepper, medium
  • 1 Red onion, medium
  • 5 Zucchini, large – divided (1 diced and 4 spiralized)
  • 2 cans (2-1/4 ounces each) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1 bottle Lite Zesty Italian salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • A touch of olive oil

Set 4 zucchinis aside.  Slice, dice and thinly chop all vegetables.  Spiralize the other 4 zucchinis to make “zoodles”.  If you don’t have a spiralizer, thinly slice or chop them.  Saute the zoodles in a skillet with a touch of olive oil just until tender and let them drain in a strainer (you may want to press them a little with a paper towel).  The zoodles replace the spaghetti noodles.  Mix all the chopped vegetables, zoodles, olives and Italian dressing in a large mixing bowl.  Refrigerate.
