Day 25 of Salad a Day
I’ve included a few vegetables that are spiralized over the last 25 days and that’s because spirals seem to change the taste and texture of the food. Today’s vegetable to cut into spirals is the cucumber. Spiralizers tend to hold the middle of the vegetable and spiral around the outside which means that cucumber spirals use the harder part of the vegetable and you’re left with the juicy, seedy middle. But don’t throw it away. In this recipe it is used for adding liquid to the dressing.
If you don’t have a spiralizer you can cut the cucumber into half lengthways, scoop out (and save) the juicy seeds, then cut the rest into thin juliennes. A local Australian store that sells spiralizers is Biome and you can order yours online here if you want to start creating spiralled vegetables.
This is part of #saladaday – A fresh, new salad everyday for 30 days. After being inundated with requests to have all the salad recipes together, I’ve collated them all into an ebook, which is on sale here.
