Simple Sesame Zucchini Spirals

Spring Rolls and Stir Fry Dinner Lo ResI‘m such a fan of pickled foods! Last night, I made veggie mini spring rolls, and I wanted something tangy to sprinkle on top of them to add some acid to the flavors and balance them. Since I was using mini zucchini strips in the spring rolls, I knew I’d have at least half of the zucchini left-over.

PerfectI I used my spiralizer to make the spirals, and I marinated them for awhile in sesame oil and rice vinegar.

I hesitate to designate specific amounts of rice vinegar and sesame oil because the amounts used are all about preference.  Of course you want a nice balance, but some may prefer slightly less vinegar or slightly more. I’d advise starting with a tablespoon of rice vinegar and a half teaspoon of sesame oil, and then adjust to taste.

Simple Sesame Zucchini Spirals


  • 1/2 cup spiralized zucchini
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil (adjust to taste)


  1. Using a spiralizer, create spirals of zucchini. If you don't have a spiralizer, you can use a vegetable peeler to peel curls/strips of zucchini.
  2. Mix the rice vinegar and sesame oil in a bowl with the zucchini spirals.
  3. These spirals are a great garnish for a savory dish – especially Asian dishes.

  1. Me too, I’m a total fan of pickled food, can’t get enough of it. Your zucchini marinated in sesame oil and rice vinegar must be so delicious. I have to try it. Thanks for the idea, Angie.

    • Thanks, Cecilia! I love it. The measurements can be altered to taste. I tend to like mine a bit more vinegary, so I tend to go a bit more heavy on that side. A dash of ginger or a few red pepper flakes might add a nice kick as well. Please let me know how it turns out for you. — Angie
