Asian Zucchini Slaw

Refreshing, Simple BBQ Side!  Asian Zucchini Slaw
The garden is filled with baby zucchini plants and I'm anxiously getting ready for summer zucchini season!  

Thank you to Common Sense Goods for sponsoring today's article.  Opinions are 100% my own.

I've been seeing vegetable noodles all over Pinterest and was excited to give them a try myself with this Spiral Vegetable Slicer.  I've learned a bit from my experience and have made a ranking of what I found to work well with it:


  • Zucchini!  These are just the right texture for the spiral slicer and make nice long noodles
  • Sweet Potatoes.  This one was unexpectedly a success.  The noodles are thinner than the same size setting on zucchini, and are shorter, but make a thin almost julienne cut.

And not so much...

  • Carrots:  I had visions of making spiral carrot slaw but my carrots were too tough for the small blades.
  • Broccoli stems: We always try to use the whole broccoli, including the stem, and I thought it might be a great candidate.  Not a success.

So Spiral Vegetable Slicer in hand, I've made a fun twist on one of our favorite asian slaws using zucchini spirals!

Use a  Spiral Vegetable Slicer to cut the zucchini into spiral shapes. 

Pour the rice vinegar, salt and pepper over the zucchini and refrigerate it overnight. 

Serve the slaw cold, as a side dish or over top of grilled chicken!

  1. Looks delish! Thanks for such a beautiful article.

    1. Thanks so much! Its a pleasure, this was a fun product!

  2. Yum, your Asian zucchini dish looks really good! #ProductReviewParty

  3. How long do you think it needs to be soaking for? I would like to try this, but I don't have overnight to wait. Would a few hours be enough?

    1. The longer it soaks the deeper the flavors set in. A few hours in the fridge is perfectly fine though! It also works great with thinly sliced cucumbers - thats what I usually use - and those take even less time for the flavor to take.

  4. What a fantastic dish. I love zucchini and have tried this at a local foodery. Delicious! :-)
