    Asian Zucchini Noodle Salad (GF/DF/Paleo)

    I’ve been dying for some Asian noodles. But instead of the wheat and rice laden carb and inflammation overload, I opted for a light and refreshing Asian zucchini noodle salad instead. It turned out amazing. Topped with some sliced grilled grass fed tri-tip (any protein will work) it’s officially on the favorite’s list. For this lunchtime meal, I made a larger batch of the Asian style dressing and used some of it as an overnight marinade for my grass fed tri tip. However, this salad is quite versatile and would be delicious with steak, chicken or even shrimp! The spiralized noodles make it more fun. I have an inexpensive spiralizer that I love.…

I paired them with a sweet tangy dipping sauce and some roasted sweet potato fries. Comfort food is only 30 minutes away! The best part about this meal is that the dipping sauce can double as a salad dressing. I just drizzled it…
