Cold Zucchini Salad

Keto Recipes > Keto Lunch Recipes

This cold zucchini salad is the perfect summery salad for serving alongside BBQ.  We create this with sauteed zucchini, celery, lots of onion, and a mayonnaise-based dressing.  This salad is great for making ahead because it’s even better if you let it sit overnight.

Cold Zucchini Salad

There’s no need to bust out the spiralizer or even the vegetable peeler because the zucchini is very simply chopped, which gives it a great chunky texture.  Try adding some rotisserie chicken and feta cheese for a heartier spin.  It’s vegetarian by default and can be made vegan if you use a vegan mayonnaise and butter substitute.

Yields 3 servings of Cold Zucchini Salad

The Preparation

  • 16 ounces zucchini
  • Salt, to taste

The Execution

1. Peel the zucchini and then slice in half length-wise. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds of the zucchini. Chop zucchini into half-inch slices. Place the zucchini in a colander with salt to draw the water out. Leave for 5-10 minutes and then lightly press remaining water out of the zucchini.
