How to make Low Carb / Keto Pepperoni “Pasta” Salad:

First place the butternut squash and zucchini spirals into a pot, and cover with water. On the stove over medium-high heat, and bring to a boil. Cook for 5-6 minutes until the “zoodles” becomes more tender, but still have a bit of crunch to them.

Then strain the veggie spirals, rinse them with cold water, and place them in a large mixing bowl.
