    I’ve been meaning to purchase a spiralizer..not so sure why I’m still without. This looks like the perfect summer side dish to take to a picnic. Served alongside salmon or shrimp and I’m a happy camper. Hope you had a wonderful fourth of July weekend!

      A picnic sounds wonderful Min-on my daughter’s bucket list for the summer :-) Can’t wait to see what you create with a spiralizer if you get one-no doubt it will be seriously delicious! My 4th of July weekend was absolutely perfect-hope yours was too {in Korea still?}

    Love how creamy the avocado makes your pesto sauce. Great idea! And fun with zucchini noodles.

    This looks DELICIOUS! I’ve got to get myself a spiralizer so I can try this!

      Thanks so much Kelli! I like the spiralizer b/c it’s a smallish gadget that doesn’t take up TOO much space in the kitchen :-)

    I bought a small spiralizer that I’ve yet to get working. I tried to skimp on price, and now I’m going to end up paying double. I have a ton of zucchini coming in my garden and would love to make this recipe, so I’m off to Amazon to buy a new one.

      Officially envious of all your zucchini Kristi! Sorry you got a bum spiralizer the first time around :-( I hope the spiralizing Gods are on your side the 2nd time around :-)

      Thanks so much Carolyn!! I’m super inspired to try more zucchini noodle {and other veggie noodle} recipes now :-)

    Love the colours and the textures! I wish I had a spiralizer but a vegetable peeler will have to do for now- yum!

      Thanks so much Genevieve! I haven’t tried using a veggie peeler, but I bet it would work well-just a little more elbow grease :-)

    A spiralizer has been on my wish list for a long time, I think I might just have to get it now :).

    I love making veggie noodles and zucchini noodles are one of my favorites! I have to try your lemony avocado pesto the next time I make some.

      I love all the veggie noodle dishes on your blog Sylvie! Hope you enjoy these too :-)

    I do a lemony avocado pasta thingy too – but not with yummy zucchini noodles. Must get me a spiralizer. I’ve been put off getting one as they are a bit of a fiddle and kind of plasticky, but everyone swears that doesn’t matter when you have a pile of beautiful vegetable noodles to plunder. Would you recommend this brand, EA?

      Hi Kellie! Yes-you must get a spiralizer as I imagine you would make all sorts of yummy things with one :-) To answer your question, I would definitely recommend this brand (got the recommendation of of the Inspiralized website) with two caveats…1. I have never tried another one, so nothing to compare it with, and 2). I really did have some problems getting the carrot to work, although now that I know how, I think it will get much easier, and Big Tex ate all his spiralized carrots, so that’s worth it’s weight in gold :-)

    Oh my, EA! That crunch… that creaminess… that lemony zing… I swear I can almost taste it.

    Yum! I just bought a spiralizer the other month and am always on the lookout for some recipe inspiration! I bet the lemon adds such a nice flavor!

    Hubby and I have been trying to eat lighter, fresher and more raw food meals and your pretty and fresh looking plate looks just the job! Clearly we won’t be compromising on any taste level with this dish…so you think I could use a julienne contraption for the courgette? X

    • The Spicy RD
      July 20, 2014

      Absolutely you could make your “noodles” any which way you choose Deena :-) The great thing about this dish, is that it is “light” and healthy, yet completely satisfying at the same time. I hope you and your hubby enjoy it!
