Raw Zucchini Salad

I made the best darn raw zucchini salad last night for dinner! There's hardly any food in my fridge and I wanted a salad but didn't have any salad ingredients - - or so I thought. I have been purchasing a ton of zucchini lately because it is such a versatile food - so healthy and very inexpensive. So like duh! You can make a salad out of just about anything - - so why not zucchini?! It took less than five minutes to make this dish.

2 raw zucchini - sliced in quarters and cut into cubes
1 whole avocado - cut into cubes from the skin
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds

(you gotta just play with it until it's to your liking)
Mix in a bowl-
Juice from 1 or less lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove minced and smashed with a fork in the olive oil to get out the flavor
Salt (add to your liking)
Pepper (add to your liking)
Red Pepper Flakes (just a few flakes for a bit of a kick!)

Mix all together - - so easy and delicious! Read about why summer squash, like zucchini, is so good for you!
