Raw Zucchini Noodles with Alfreda Sauce

The simplicity of this dish suits the relaxed nature of picking your summer vegetables from the garden and throwing together something easy for lunch or dinner.

Just be sure to soak your cashews in the morning.zucchini noodles in alfreda sauce (Small)

Adjust the combo of vegetables to suit your taste. You can pretty much go anywhere with this dish.

I like to add strips of steamed kale. Thin sliced red capsicum or steamed/raw broccoli make nice additions also. zucc noodles (Small)
