3-24-2013Here’s a pasta salad recipe that you can indulge in while still getting flat abs! The secret is to use a vegetable peeler to turn zucchini into long pasta-like strands. This recipe is filled with fiber and is the perfect side to a lean chicken breast. Servings: 4

Here’s what you need:

  • 3 organic zucchini
  • 1/2 cup organic cherry tomatoes, quartered
