Raw Zucchini Noodles with Spinach Pesto

It is July, which means it is hot and humid in New Jersey. The last thing I want to do when getting home from a tough workout is slave over a hot stove. This meal solves the problem! Make the spinach pesto in advance and then slice up the “noodles”, toss, and serve when ready to eat!
