Spiralized Vegetable Salad With Zucchini and Beets




Looking for a creative way to serve your vegetables?  Spiralize them and make them into a salad. 

I spiralized zucchini and beets for this colorful salad and placed them over fresh spinach leaves.



The flavors mingled beautifully, and it was light and easy to eat. 


The nutritional benefits of raw beets are amazing. They are bursting with nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties making them are a powerful vegetable to include in your weekly menu. 


Low in calories and high in fiber, beets are a great choice for any summer salad.

I love the presentation and often make this salad for company with added pecans or walnut halves, sunflower seeds, and or raisins. 



I dress it in my homemade gluten free apple honey salad dressing or if you are oil free, add your own oil free salad dressing. 

If you don't have a spiralizer, I use Spiralizer By Palermo  . I find it very easy to use and it has held up well. If you do have a spiralizer, take it out and start using it. You can make spiralized veggies as a salad or stir fry! 

Ingredients: 

1/2 small zucchini per person
1/2 small beet per person 
6 large organic spinach leaves
Optional: add pecans, halved walnuts, sunflower seeds and or raisins.

Directions: 

Spiralize your zucchini and arrange on plate 
Add spiralized beets to the center of plate
Decorate with 6 spinach leaves
Optional :  Drizzle apple  honey salad dressing or your own oil free dressing
add pecans, walnuts, sunflower seeds, or raisins

    1. I like the ease of making them. They really only take 30 seconds to spiralize a zucchini- I know some people like to be their's in the supermarket pre made but I like mine fresh and it's so easy.
