Spiralized Veggie Salad recipe
For the salad
1 medium carrot, peeled
1 red or green apple
50 ml / 3 tbsp juice of half a lemon (for apple)
1 zucchini, skin left on
4 large red radishes, skin left on
25 g / 1/4 cup toasted almonds
20 g / 2 tbsp sesame seeds
For the dressing
53 g / 4 tbsp Canola Harvest margarine with olive oil, melted and cooled
30 ml / 2 tbsp rice vinegar or mirin*
*Mirin is a japanese sweet cooking rice wine. It can be found in the Asian section of most grocery stores.
1. Spiral all of the vegetables into a large bowl filled with lemon water.
2. Prepare a small bowl with 1 cup of cold water and juice from half a lemon. Spiral the apple and add to the lemon water. This will prevent the apple from turning brown.
3. Combine the two dressing ingredients into a jar with a lid. Shake. Pour over salad and toss with toasted almonds and sesame seeds.
This salad is best served immediately when everything is crunchy and crisp. Leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator and will soften a bit as it sits in the dressing.
