  • Author: Carol Green

  • Yield: 6 1x


Ribbons of zucchini and melon pop with an explosion of fresh herbs and complimented with a sesame ginger dressing for this cool summer salad.



4 medium Zucchini

1 Sugar Cube Melon, or half a Canteloupe

3 stems Green Onion, finely diced

6 Mint Leaves, finely diced

8 large Basil Leaves, chiffonade cut

4 stems Cilantro, finely diced


2 Tbsp. fresh Lime Juice, plus zest

2 Tbsp. Tamari Soy Sauce

1 Tbsp. Ginger, finely grated

1 tsp. Dijon Mustard

2 tsp. Honey

1 tsp. Fish Sauce

1/4 cup Rice Wine Vinegar

1/2 cup Olive Oil

2 tsp. Sesame Oil


  • Prepare the dressing; whisk together all the ingredients except the oils in a bowl.
  • Slowly add the oil while whisking, until emulsified. Set aside.
  • Prepare the salad; Using a spiralizer, create ribbons of zucchini.
  • Place in a bowl, add enough dressing to coat and set aside to marinate.
  • Using a sharp vegetable peeler, create fine ribbons with the melon.
  • Add the melon to the zucchini, toss through with the herbs and serve.


I love this ‘pencil sharpener’ style vegetable spiralizer, it makes quick work of producing perfect zucchini ribbons, plus comes bundled with a vegetable peeler included.
