A Greek Zoodle Salad is a twist on the traditional Greek salad made by swapping the lettuce for raw spiralized zucchini noodles.  It's the perfect salad for pizza night, parties, or picnics!

Just recently, we officially became a whole pizza family.  What I mean by that is that my husband, myself, and our two kids can usually polish off a whole pizza as a meal.

This is great because there are no leftovers to put away.  It's also not so awesome because there are no leftovers to put away.  A double-edged sword if you will.

You see, my daughter loves taking a slice of pizza in her lunchbox the day after pizza night and if I don't teach my kids about the joys of cold pizza for breakfast, well then who will?

I've started making a nice salad to go with our pizza to ensure we have a slice or two left over for the next day.  Adding a salad is also a great way to give our pizza night a homemade touch!

One of my favorite salads to serve with pizza is a Greek salad, but with summer approaching and all of that gorgeous zucchini popping up everywhere, I was inspired to mix things up and make a bright, fresh, beautiful raw zoodle Greek salad.

A zoodle is a zucchini that is cut into noodle shape or, in this case, spiralized!  Zucchini noodles can be eaten cooked or raw and are super versatile, just like real pasta!

I loaded my zoodles up with all of the classic Greek salad toppers.  I served my Greek Zoodle Salad with a Freschetta Artisan Crust pizza that I picked up at Publix.  Have you tried the Artisan Crust pizza yet?

The Freschetta Artisan Crust is made with three whole grains and is new at Publix!  You can pick them up at a great deal of 2 for $10 until 6/8.  I'm forever a Publix girl and I love a good deal, so this was perfect for our pizza night.  Want to know more about Freschetta?  Drop by their Facebook, Twitter, or Youtube anytime!

Naturally, this salad will be perfect for so many occasions; think picnics, parties, and pool days.

I'm just a sucker for the Greek salad flavors paired with Italian, so making it for pizza night was a no-brainer for me.  It comes together super quickly making it a great choice for those busy nights when pizza is on the menu.

What kind of salad would you make to serve with your Freschetta pizza?  Not sure? Totes try this raw Greek Zoodle Salad and I know you will fall in love!

Yield: 6-8 servings

  • 3 small zucchini
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, halved

  1. Spiralize zucchini and cucumber and place into a large bowl.  Cut any extra long pieces with kitchen shears.  Add the red onion to the bowl and toss to mix in.  
  2. In a small mason jar, combine the olive oil, vinegar, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  Screw a lid onto the jar and shake vigorously to combine.
  3. Pour half of the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.  Top with the tomatoes, feta cheese, olives and remaining dressing.  Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately. 

  • If you do not have a spiralizer, you can use a knife to cut the zucchini and cucumber into noodle shape.
  • Serve with a Freschetta Artisan, Brick Oven, or Naturally Rising crust pizza for a complete meal.

  1. What a fun creation, zoodles! I love that idea. Quite the sneaky way to get vegetables in too, I need to try it for my little ones! I typically serve fruit with pizza for my kids, but this would def shake things up. Thanks for sharing! #client
