One of my most favorite summertime salads is Italian Pasta Salad.

My mom would make it every summer – it was so delicious….with it’s sharp, Italian flavors, delicious pepperoni slices, crunchy, lightly steamed vegetables….and pasta.

I’ll be honest, pasta was one of the hardest things for me to give up……until zucchini.

I’m sorry for those who don’t like zucchini. It is one of the best things to happen to Keto, because it’s so versatile, easy to use….and it’s delicious!

You’ll need a spiralizer like this one that I have: Vegetable Spiralizer

So, I decided to try my favorite summertime treat — Keto style! I have to say – it was instant pleasure!

  1. The salad looks great Rosilind. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I have a spiral slicer but it’s a danger to my fingers to use. I’ve got the one you recommended in my shopping cart.
