This zucchini salad with mint and pickles is inspired by one of Jamie Oliver’s 15-minute healthy recipes. This quick and savory salad is raw, vegan and macrobiotic too!
Oh my, oh my… I never thought I’d like this salad so much the first time I saw it on Jamie Oliver’s TV show. I usually don’t like weird ingredient mixes in salads, like fruits and greens, or sweet and salty flavors, but this salad was the exception!
My mom called me a few weeks ago to tell me about this great zucchini and mint salad she saw on Jamie’s show. First, I was reluctant because mint and raw zucchini didn’t sound so appealing to me, but then I decided to give it a try. Oh…and I’m so glad I did! This is truly a great salad and all the credit for the inspiration goes to the amazing Jamie Oliver! 🙂
I added a personal touch too, the pickles and carrots go great in this! Also, I didn’t have some of the ingredients in the original recipe, so I skipped them. The result was just as good.
I really hope you’ll give it a try! This zucchini salad with mint and pickles is not only delicious, but raw, vegan and macrobiotic too! Enjoy!
