Summer Squash and Carrot Spiralizer Salad

By

It is definitely summer and very hot in Tucson.  Temperatures have been hovering around 110 or more. Not too bad inside and in the shade.  Early mornings are still pleasant enough for breakfast on the patio. Consequently, I am thinking, “Who wants to heat up the kitchen?”

How about a new cold salad created with my “new found” Spiralizer? I stashed it after the move and just put it back into action.  Since, I have been on a Spiralizer binge.  We have had several rounds of “zoodles”, zucchini noddles, with a very tasty marinara sauce.  Here is the link to that recipe. Even my pasta loving friends asked for a repeat performance. Another recipe I found,  Spicy Thai Chicken and Sweet Potato Noodles, was another big hit.

I have used the Spiralizer in the past to prep summer squash and onions for sautéing but this time I wanted to use the squash in a cold salad.  Here is the recipe I came up with. Summer Squash and Carrot Spiralizer Salad.

Dinner was great!  Squash salad with grilled breast of chicken, healthy and oh so colorful.

I played around with plating this dish and tried this brightly colored fused glass plate I made. I most often like food served on white dishes but the color coordinated so well I thought I would give it a try.spiralizer_salad_cold_summer_squash_carrots_onion_grilled_chicken_breast-fusedglass_plateIMG_5858 2What do you think?  White or decorative glass plate?  Let me know!

Enjoy this salad and keep cool this summer!

    Thanks, Nancy. I like the clean presentation of the white plate. But my favorite is the flavor of this salad. You need to try it. On our way to Cali. See you next week

    I LOVE both plates. I think I like the plain white one and I might try to eat the colors in the second one 🙂 Think the food looks so gorgeous in the first one.
