Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
1 tablespoon coconut oil
4 medium zucchinis, ends removed & chopped

Zesty Cilantro Sauce:
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
2 cups baby spinach
½ cup fresh cilantro

Heat coconut oil in a large skillet set to medium heat. Add chopped zucchini, sea salt, black pepper and garlic powder and stir well.
Reduce heat to low, stirring occasionally, until very soft, about 7-10 minutes.
While the zucchini is cooking, add mayonnaise, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, baby spinach, cilantro, basil, sun-dried tomatoes and lemon zest to a food processor or blender and pulse well until it is thick and creamy.
Pour into the zucchini and increase heat to medium and continue to sauté until bubbly, about 3-5 minutes.
