Raw Zucchini Pesto Pasta Salad

Similar to the marinara version of raw pasta, this is a yummy and lower-calorie version of pasta. This is great on a hot summer evening as you don't have to heat up the kitchen! And this would be good as a cold salad at a potluck.

I use normal pesto in the link below, but you could easily make a raw vegan pesto (i.e. remove the cheese!) to make the whole dish completely raw and vegan.

Slice zucchini into thin strands (use a spiralizer, julienne slicer, or resort to a mandolin or veggie peeler and knife).  If you have really picky people, you can remove the skin first but I like it with strands of the green skin showing!  The "noodles" look like this:

Toss with pesto, and chopped sun dried tomatoes. Serve immediately.
