SPIRALIZER FUN | Simple raw veggie salad

raw veggie salad

Once a month is book club night, one of the best weeknights of the month! It’s the perfect excuse to try a new recipe, sip wine with friends on a Tuesday night, and chat about books (and then gossip a bit afterwards).

Last week was book club. I’d already selected my wine and next month’s book recommendation. Now all I had to do was pick a recipe!

​As I recently mentioned, I’m spiralizer obsessed! I’ve been googling all of the different things I can spiralize, which is how I came up with this tasty, super simple, raw veggie salad for my book club dish.This salad takes about 5 minutes to make, requires only a few ingredients, and is super healthy!

Ingredients:
– Zuchinni (spiralized, aka raw zoodles)
– Carrots (spiralized)
– Cucumber (diced)
– Cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
– Lemon juice (a few tablespoons)
– Olive oil (a tablespoon)
– Salt and pepper (to taste)

Mix together all the ingredients and serve chilled :) It’s a great dish to bring to a party (aka book club) where you know there will be delicious but unhealthy options such as baked brie, sausage pasta, brownies, and glasses of red wine.

It’s a good thing this salad was delicious to make up for the not-so-great book club read this month. Seriously, don’t waste your time reading it.

What are some of your go-to party/book club recipes? I need a new recipe for next month!

BTW, my book recommendation wasn’t selected as next month’s read, but The Circle by Dave Eggers was! It actually looks really good! *fingers crossed*

        Where did you get your spiralizer by the way? I’ve been hearing so many good things about it! I have a mandolin, but it is kind of dangerous and I’m always afraid of cutting myself by accident..

        I got it right off Amazon for $8! It’s cheap and super easy to use (and not dangerous at all like a mandolin haha). It’s called the Kitchen Active Spiralizer http://amzn.to/1LFNA9U

    Do you have the Veggetti? I don’t think it makes carrot noodles. If so, how do you do that? If not, which one do you have? Thanks!
