Avocado Zucchini Salad with Lime

A simple salad with a burst of zesty lime and few ingredients – the perfect start to a meal. This salad is low in calories but gives a boost of fibre, vitamin A, and iron, and is loaded with vitamin C. Pick a variety of yellow and green zucchinis for a more colourful dish and try substituting other fresh herbs such as flat-leaf parsley or basil for a deeper flavour profile!
