Have you ever found yourself in a mealtime rut? Are the kids complaining about having spaghetti night, yet again? I’ve been there more than a few times myself. I used to have a hard time finding new family-friendly recipes that are simple-to-prepare, and also easy on the budget.

Thanks to the Publix Best Meals website, I now have plenty of family mealtime inspiration. The Zucchini Noodle Salad with Tomatoes recipe I’m sharing with you today, is a keeper. It’s one of those side dishes that pairs great with anything. I like to toss this salad together, pop it in the fridge, then put chicken or steak on the grill. Perfect for the weekend or a busy weeknight!
For this recipe, you can save yourself some of the slicing and dicing by picking up the ready-to-go zucchini spirals from the Publix produce department, and a couple of cans of Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes.
This is such a simple-to-prepare, flavorful, and better for you recipe. I know you’re going to love it.
