I got a Spiralizer for Mother’s Day!!!! I guess all my hints paid off lol. I have been wanting one for what seems like ages but never remembered to order myself one. Now I have one! I received beautiful gifts from both of my kids… thank you to both of you… as well as from Chris and not only a wonderful lunch at my “in-laws” home but some beautiful cream coloured roses! I was spoiled!
Since we were having the Mother’s Day lunch and although I was told I didn’t need to bring anything I couldn’t help myself… especially once I received the Spiralizer!!! I had to find something to make and this won out. I was going to use the same recipe I use when making my usual Cucumber Salad, but this time I tried a different dressing and other than the cucumber and radish spirals being very long and difficult to serve up ( I will have to remember next time to cut them into smaller pieces lol), everyone enjoyed the salad immensely!
Here are the ingredients I used to make it.
I started using my Spiralizer with the cucumber but was so enthralled with the process and with how easy it was to use I forgot to take a picture until I got to the radishes lol!
Once the cucumber and radish were all spriralized in the bowl….
I chopped some green onions up to add to it.
I mixed the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl.
Mixed it into the salad veggies…
And decided at the last minute to sprinkle the top with some dill weed, just because it looked nice, before letting it chill for 30 minutes.
And that is how I made my first Spiralizer dish!
