Summer Inspired Zucchini Noodles

IMG_4753

On my rare days off one of my favorite things to do is pack lunch, slap on some sunscreen, grab a good book and head to the beach.  The usual salad, turkey wrap, or Greek yogurt gets old pretty quickly.  This super easy lunch is perfect for the beach because it can be served at just about any temperature and still taste super yummy!  Add some grilled shrimp or chicken if you are looking to serve this as a heavier dinner option with a bit more protein!
