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?Print

I’ve been wanting to try a spiralizer & didn’t know OXO made one! This salad looks so delicious. I must admit it’s the zucchini noodles that I’ve been wanting to try. Great post Sammie x. http://www.feastingisfun.com
I love that you did a fruit and veggie mix for this! It’s a testament to how versatile the spiralizer is.
I haven’t got a spiralizer yet, but everyone is enjoying it so much that I think it’s inevitable! Yummy-looking salad.

You have to try the spiralizer. I am seriously in love with this dish and will be using mine again very soon.
