#EverydayInspiralized: Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Avocado Lime Cilantro Dressing, Corn and Tomatoes

gluten freeveganvegetarian


We’re back with a new episode of #EverydayInspiralized, my video cooking series on my YouTube channel.

We’re making a brand new recipe (and one that I know many of you have been waiting for after teasers on Instagram) –  Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Avocado Lime Cilantro Dressing, Corn and Tomatoes!

I make this dressing A LOT. I’m always incorporating avocados somehow into my diet, and this is probably my favorite way to do it. You get to eat a big bowl of creamy pasta, without the processed dairy and sugar.

Unfortunately, since avocados oxidize and turn brown easily, it doesn’t save well in the refrigerator (the avocado sauce will brown within 30 minutes), so keep that in mind as you’re meal planning. But trust me, you won’t have any leftovers – it’s so good you’ll want to devour the whole bowl!

The corn are slightly spicy and the tomatoes are fresh and chilled, it’s just an amazing combination – this is going to become one of your go-to summer meals, I have a feeling!

Ali Maffucci says:
Hi there! It's Ali :) They are from Crate & Barrel, we got them as a wedding gift! So glad you liked the recipe!
Robin says:
This looks yummy - definitely going to try! I love the fact that so many of your recipes don't require much time cooking - just a quick sauté. I am American - but currently live in Singapore where it is extremely hot and humid year round. So hate to spend much time in front of the stove. Enjoy your time in SE Asia. I have been here a couple of years now - and I have fallen in love with the culture, food and people!
Meaghan says:
We're so happy you're enjoying our recipes! Thanks!
Lisa Hochstetler says:
I tried this recipe last night. The only difference was I cooked the zucchini zoodles. It was delicious and I added it to my Pinterest favorites.
Meaghan says:
Thank you for sharing, Lisa! We're so happy you enjoyed it.
Maribeth says:
I am definitely making this for lunch tomorrow! Would you be able to tell me what brand is the salt/pepper grinders? Thank you!
Ali Maffucci says:
They were a wedding gift and are unlabeled, sorry! You can find different varieties at Williams Sonoma and most kitchen retailers!
Michele Pryse says:
Simple & delicious, YUM. We had a serving leftover and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the avocado dressing didn't turn brown the next day. I used a Pinkerton avocado.
Ali Maffucci says:
So happy you gave it a try!
Alice May says:
This recipe... WOW! This was my first inspiralizer recipe and it was a huge success! I added sauteed chicken, and my fiance added some sriracha sauce... knockout! Can't wait to try other recipes!
Ali Maffucci says:
Love the sriracha addition! So glad you loved it!
Tyler Rowson says:
I have made this 3 times since you posted this recipe, and it has easily become my go to summer recipe! I have added rotisserie chicken a couple of times, and its great as well. Such a delicious recipe! Thank you!!
Ali Maffucci says:

It's always good to shake up your cooking routine to make cooking fun. I must say your new spiralizer has done that for me! I just received it and this was my first recipe that I tried. The only thing I did differently was I stir fried the zoodles for 3 min till aldenta. It was off the charts GREAT! My husband licked his plate when he was finished and I licked the skillet! Hehe! All I can say is this is the best way to eat your vegies!

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
