This quick and easy ginger beef stir-fry is a great way to use up an abundance of summer zucchini from your garden or the farmers market. When zucchini is cut into noodles (you get zoodles!) and then stir-fried, you’ll think you’re eating your favorite noodle dish from your local takeout place. Don’t skip the step of salting your zucchini or you’ll end up with soggy noodles.
