I 'spiralized' 1 zucchini, added some chopped broccoli florettes, 3 green onions chopped complete, 4 oz sliced mushrooms, about 45 sliced grape tomatoes. Toss with freshly made pesto (about 3/4 cup), then made 'dressing' from olive oil, rice wine vinegar and salad spices (basil, celery seed, etc). O.M.G.
