Southwestern Falafel Zoodle Salad

  I got a new spiralizer for Christmas that I love! It makes my zucchini into long curly spiralized noodles! This is one of my favorite salads I ever created with this creamy dressing! Even my brother's loved it! Who don't usually like falafel. 

  The falafel patties are packed with southwestern flavor and they're high in protein. You will be making this salad all summer long with you're garden zucchini.
