Sesame noodles are one of my favorite summertime dishes. Noodles are tossed in an easy sauce and can be enjoyed warm, room temperature or cold. This zucchini version is even lighter and more refreshing.

This weekend we had a few friends visiting and did a full weekend food crawl. If you viewed all the food I ate on Instagram stories, I swear I don’t always eat like that. By Sunday, I was starting to feel it and my stomach really wanted a rest. And now, I really am just craving a lot of greens to counter all the meat, fried food, and sweets we consumed over the weekend. These noodles are a good start.an overhead shot of sesame zucchini noodles in a bowl with chopsticks on the edge
