Looking for something new and fresh to inspire your menu? This recipe, created in partnership with our friends at Fruits & Veggies More Matters, is a surprising and delicious mix of zucchini, fresh strawberries and shrimp, tossed in a light Asian dressing. At only 170 calories and with 14g of protein and 1.75 cups of fruits and veggies, this dish is a whole lot of healthy.

But, where are the noodles? Right there! The zucchini are cut into “noodles” which can be done lickety-split with a spiralizer (an inexpensive gadget for noodling up fruits and veggies). Check out the video from The Produce Mom to see it in action!
