Raw Spicy Zoodle Salad

This year you will see a lot of easy and less ingredient recipes on the blog.

Hello Lovely Readers,

Yes. You heard it right. Last year I did get a lot of feedback from most of you asking me to post savory recipes and easy recipes which do not require baking. Though eggless baking is my forte and I love to put up those on the blog I will also try to add a lot of DIY easy recipes on the blog.

ZOODLES!! Also known as zucchini noodles is the STAR ingredient of the recipe.

Everyone is shifting from noodles to zoodles these days. And why not? They are way more healthier than noodles. You definitely need a Spiralizer to get those perfect zoodles..But incase you do not have one you can use a regular grater to do so. It wont be perfect but will give you long spirals of Zucchini which very much does the job. This salad is definitely my new found love. It is supremely rich in nutrition and a bowl filled with flavor and health. With a shelf life if up to 2 days without the dressing this is definitely a perfect option when travelling. It is filling and can be a perfect crunchy snack for those hunger pangs. 🙂

P.S – I am in love with the addition of Red Cabbage.

The red cabbage is really high in fiber ans looks beautiful when you add it in a recipe. It is easily available in the markets these days. I never picked them until I thought about adding it to the salad and I am completely in love with these beauties. They are absolutely gorgeous. This sald is raw and has nothing cooked. So all you have to do is mix all the ingredients together and you are sorted. If you want to prepare it in advance for an early dinner or lunch you can mix everything together and just add the dressing when ready to serve. It truly is divine.

The dressing is spicy and the special addition of Mustard is like a cherry on the cake. The base is definitely of Olive Oil and Lime. The dressing does have a lot of spices yet has a balanced flavor with the addition of honey.

Lets get started.
