Steps (3)

  • Step 1
    In a food processor, add avocado, basil, walnuts, Hidden Valley® Greek Yogurt Ranch, lemon zest and garlic. Pulse until almost smooth. While the machine is running, slowly add olive oil and pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Step 2
    Set spiralizer to the spaghetti noodle setting. Place zucchini in spiralizer according to package directions and twist until zucchini has been turned into noodles. If you don't have a spiralizer use a vegetable peeler to make thin zucchini ribbons. Trim noodles into 6–8 inch pieces before tossing.
  • Step 3
    In a large bowl, toss together zucchini noodles and tomatoes. Add dressing and toss to coat. Garnish with extra basil leaves. Serve chilled.
