For the zucchini tzatziki:


Step 1

Make the tzatziki: Toss zucchini in a small bowl with a pinch of salt. Let sit for five minutes, then firmly squeeze between paper towels to release excess water and drain. Combine the zucchini with 3 tablespoons olive oil and the remaining tzatziki ingredients. Season with salt, as desired, and store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Step 2

Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and the ras el hanout spice blend. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, then remove from heat. Slice into thin strips.

Step 3

In a large bowl, combine the zucchini, cabbage, tomatoes, and mint. Add the chicken and tzatziki and toss to combine. Serve with a side of pita.
