I’ll play Andthepupmakes3: … here’s a dinner we had recently (also using zucchini noodles): 

For the skewers:

I used half a chorizo for this sliced. And half a chunk of haloumi cheese cubed. Thread on to soaked skewers. Drizzle with olive oil. And grill on a hot grill pan… a couple minutes each side. These really take no time at all.

For the salad:

I used my spiral cutter to turn the zucchini into noodles but they’d work just as well cubed or juilienne’d. Toss in a bowl with can of chickpeas, a couple minced garlic cloves (I dig garlic in all forms including raw… you can used dried if it’s overpowering), I also tossed in some dehydrated minced onion but not neccessary if you don’t have it on hand, red pepper flakes (to taste… we like ours spicy) and juice of half a lemon or more to taste. Toss well and season with fresh ground pepper and a little salt.
