Spiralized Fruit and Vegetable Salad

Spiralized Fruit and Vegetable Salad - A healthy, vegan, guten free side dish you will LOVE!

I’m behind the times. I’ve seen so many spiralized salads, but I’ve never made one.

They look so cool and are so the type of thing I would love to eat. Luckily my friends at OXO sent me a Hand-Held Spiralizer. I was so excited. I busted it open and got to work making dinner immediately.

It’s such a simple tool that is easy to use and can create and endless variety of meals, which I love. It definitely requires a lot of elbow grease to work, though I think it will get easier the more I use it. Plus, I love getting in a little extra cardio 😉

While I would try spiralizing anything that would fit in the tool and is firm enough to turn into noodles, I started with zucchini, carrots, and apples. The zucchini was the easiest, but I got the hang of it with carrots and apple.

Adding apple was such a fun complement to the salad. I didn’t get long noodles with it because it was kind of hard to cut and fit into the circular spiralizer, but I didn’t mind.

The different textures of the zucchini, carrots, and apple totally worked together and went perfectly with the apple cider vinaigrette I made. This healthy, vegan, gluten free option is a great lunch, dinner, or side dish. I paired it with salmon, but you would pair it with anything.

Next up, I’m making zucchini pasta! What are you excited to spiralize?
