This Zucchini Carrot Ribbon Salad is a delicious vegan side dish that uses local, farm-fresh ingredients. Healthy vegetables and a yummy dressing!

This delicious zucchini carrot ribbon salad is a wonderful recipe for the mid-summer bounty you’ll find at your farmers’ market. Other vegetables can be added, but I do love the simple combination of carrots, zucchini, and vinaigrette. We tend to get a lot of greens from our farm share, so we eat lots of lettuce-based salads. I like to vary our menu with other types of salad in the summer, and this one goes well with any kind of main dish.

  1. Hi Annemarie, I just wanted to let you know I featured this recipe in my Low Carb Gluten-free Zucchini Recipes roundup. I hope you’ll get some visits coming your way!

  2. Annemarie,
    Your salad looks very fresh and inviting! I love the color combinations. Our farm share has been changing from greens towards summer veggies , so I look forward to having the elements to make this.

    1. Thanks, Kirsten. I love all the greens, but it’s nice when the solid stuff begins arriving.

  3. This sounds really good… Thanks for posting it. I am thinking it will go really well with the roast chicken I am planning on making later in the week
