Mint, Feta, and Veggie Noodle Salad

Summer is all about fresh food and fun flavors! Lately, I have been challenging myself to use more fresh herbs like mint, cilantro, parsley, oregano, and basil. Every time that I do, I am so please by how delicious and refreshing the final resulting product is! This recipe for Mint, Feta, and Veggie Noodle Salad is the PERFECT example of just that – refreshing, delicious and fun!

This recipe was inspired by a salad that one of my dearest friends made and shared with me – the salad was made with zucchini noodles, arugula, and mint – and it was ABSOLUTELY amazing.

I originally planned to make this adapted recipe using zucchini noodles, but when I went to the grocery store, they were out of zucchini! So I improvised – hence, the VEGGIE noodle salad was born.

In this recipe, I recommend you use zucchini noodles or yellow squash – but the options are endless! Carrot, butternut squash, or even radish noodles would taste delicious. The only veggie noodle that I probably would not recommend using is a sweet potato noodles, just because I’ve personally never eaten sweet potato noodles raw and am not sure how they taste!

I used mint and cilantro in this recipe because I just love how the flavors blend together. Not to mention, how they perfectly pair with the feta and waluts! Anything light and vinegar based is going to taste refreshing and delicious.  Try it for yourself!Refreshing and full of flavor, this Mint, Feta & Veggie Noodle Salad is sure to impress your taste buds and your friends.| NOMaste Kitchen

  • Haley, Needed something light to serve for lunch to company (we had done enough over eating!) so I tried this and it was PERFECT!! I had never used spiralized zucchini so I was a bit nervous about it’s texture and flavor but I must say it was delicious with the wonderful combination of flavors you put together here! Had enough dressing left to make a second batch for just Richard and I today. Yummy and thanks!


  • Wow this veggie and noodle salad looks amazing! I love the walnuts and mint leaves, great flavors! Beautiful photography as well, bright and crisp. Thanks for sharing!


  • This looks like such a beautiful and delicious salad! I love the mint and feta combination and now that I have a spiralizer, I can make this!!
