    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.
  2. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect to pack in the cooler I love this recipe and making my own noodles with zucchini, I have a granddaughter that is vegan and I'm always looking for recipes for her. Delicious!
