  1. At the top of the recipe it says that it serves 4 but then at the end it says serves 2. Just wondering which it is.

    1. Kimmiek1967, The Green Bean and Zucchini Salad can be eaten on its own or over a bed of quinoa for added protein.

    1. Carey Hass, You can just omit the sprouts entirely and have the salad without it, or substitute them with
      basically any vegetable, such as cucumbers.

  2. You show this as 6 smart points – is that including the quinoa? it isn’t included in the recipe but mentioned that the salad can be served on a bed of it.

  3. I can’t get the nutritional data to add up.. if it is 207kcal per serving without quinoa then the whole zucchini salad would be over 600kcal. It seems for correct that 207 is for the whole recipe and not per serving?

    1. We’re happy you enjoyed the recipe. ? We apologize that our nutritional data was way off; it’s been corrected now. Thank you for calling it to our attention.
