Raw Spiral Veggie Salad

Spiralized Zucchini Noodle Salad

Spring is here! And for me that means incorporating more fresh raw dishes into my diet. I like to eat a combination of both raw and cooked foods, and vegetable dishes of all different colours. Just like this spiralized veggie dish!

Do you own a spiralizer? If not, that’s ok. You could make this salad using a julienne peeler, or julienne the vegetables by hand like in this video.

But if you have a spiralizer, pull that bad boy out of the cupboard and have some fun with it! You can spiralize a number of different vegetables, from zucchini, carrots, beets, sweet potato, broccoli stalk, cucumber, jicama, apples, … even onion!

Check out the recipe below, but feel free to get creative and add any other raw vegetable you like. This sesame dressing pairs well with just about anything!
