Using a spiralizer is one new way to mix up your salad routine. With a handheld spiralizer or a countertop spiralizer like the Paderno 4-Blade Spiralizer, you can create long, meaty ribbons of any hearty vegetable, from carrots to zucchini to daikon radishes. Here are three spiralized salad recipes that serve as great jumping-off points.
This refreshing salad is most colorful when made with a watermelon radishes, but you can substitute red radishes if watermelon radishes aren’t available.
This vibrantly colored salad is delicious as is, but we also love it topped with crispy garlic chips.
This nutrient-dense salad will spark a love affair with beets. Although it’s not essential, to minimize the bleeding effect of the red beets, you can rinse and then soak the spiralized beets in cold water for 5 to 10 minutes before tossing and serving.
