Zucchini Pasta Salad

I just got back from my annual retreat in the lovely Mendocino woodlands of Northern California. Stewie came with me this time and it was a lot of fun! We got to meet up with my sister, her boyfriend, and some of her other friends... as well as visit our wonderful friend Marby! We got to go to the beach, eat on the pier, chill in the hotel jacuzzi, and drive all over L.A. I can't wait for the next road trip :)

Anyways, I'm back now and I've got a bunch of recipes! I basically did no cooking on my 12 day vacation, but I've got a couple from right before I left and right after I got back. I finally took pictures of my favorite Potato recipe! But that's for another day... Today is a bit more healthy.

For July Fourth weekend, my Mom invited me over to help her make some food for dinner. My rents have been on a vegan/vegetarian health kick for the past few months which I think is really great! Every time I go over for dinner we always make really interesting and filling meals in which fresh vegetables dominate. When I came over on the Fourth, we weren't really sure what we were going to make but we had a ton of fresh basil, squash, and zucchini. One of the recipes we came up with was one I had been thinking about for a long time because it's on tons of different vegan and raw websites. Zucchini Pasta!
