- I use a soft vegan cheese made here in Canada called VegNature. It’s cashew based and fermented with a crust of herbs/spices. It kind of looks like a typical goat cheese log and eats that way too. So good! If you can’t find something similar in your area, the Minimalist Baker site has an easy recipe for a homemade version here.
- I used Brightland’s new Parasol champagne vinegar, but lots of other vinegars would be good: white wine vinegar, white balsamic vinegar, and regular balsamic vinegar all work.
- I use the ground Guntur Sannam Chillies from Diaspora Co. in this salad for a bit of heat. One of my favourite spices! You could substitute Aleppo pepper or even slightly crushed up dried red chili flakes.
- I also garnished my salad with a torn zucchini flower. This is a pretty touch, but not necessary :)
Shaved zucchini salad with plums, herbs, and almonds is delicious and simple. Every bite is fresh, bright, juicy, toasty, and creamy with a hint of heat
