Zucchini Noodle Salad With Wafu Dressing


I have taken a liking to zucchini and zucchini flowers. I have added them to my list of dishes to be served more often in our daily meals.  Today, I am making salad out of zucchini. Julienne them into long noodles and served as salad. Zucchini noodle salad with wafu salad dressing is a hit with the family. For me, personally, I find this salad very delicious and refreshing especially served chilled. For healthy conscious people, this is one good one, little calories and zucchini eaten raw preserve more nutrients than cooked ones.  Try this , you will love it if you are a salad person.  I AM!

Ingredients:

1 zucchini - julienne into zucchini noodles
1 red onion- sliced thinly

topping
bonito flakes
toasted wasabi flavored seaweeds

Wafu dressing - adapted from Just One Cookbook

1 tbsp of grated onion with juice
3 tbsp of vegetable oil * I used rice bran oil
3 tbsp of Japanese Soy Sauce
3 tbsp of rice vinegar * I used Japanese grain vinegar - it taste better
1 tbsp sugar
freshly ground pepper
1/2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds

Method:
Put all the dressing ingredients above in a small bowl.  Whisk the ingredients together to create a perfect blend.  Leave it to rest for 20 mins to allow  a more intense flavor.

Prepare the Zucchini Noodles
Julienne zucchini into long noodles .  Lay them on a salad plate together with the onion slices.  Drizzle the salad dressing over the zucchini noodles . Topped with bonito flakes and toasted wasabi flavored seaweeds.

Note:  I like it chilled. It taste better if chilled.  Can be served at room temperature.
