When I first read this topic, I was a bit confused. What could I make with shapes and/or ribbons? Then I thought to myself “don’t you sprialize veggie noodles a few times  week in the summer?” Why, yes I do!

I didn’t want to do regular zucchini noodles so I’m doing a take on a “slaw”.  This slaw salad that could be used as a side dish as well as base for a full meal (if you added some protein). How impressed would people be if you brought this pretty baby with you to a potluck or BBQ this summer?

I kept everything raw because it’s refreshing in the summer but also to keep the vitamins and phytonutrients in tact. All these veggies add fiber to the meal and would be a nice balance to some of the more unhealthy food you might find at BBQs/potlucks.

    1. Thank you so much Johanna! I forget the other hemisphere is in winter now. I am always so jealous of my Australian blogger friends when it’s freezing here and you all are having fun summer foods. 🙂 Though it’s almost 100 degrees here today so I almost long for cooler weather (almost lol).

  1. This looks so delicious. I’m going to try making it with sunflower seed butter instead (one of my daughters is allergic to peanuts). I love the flavours you use in this.

  2. Gorgeous! I love this, and not only am I pinning it, I’m hoping to actually make it. 😉 I love an excuse to get out the spiralizer, and this rainbow of color (and nutrients and flavors) is fabulous!

  3. This is SO PRETTY! It would make any potluck just perfect =) And it sounds pretty easy to make, which I like. The peanut sauce sounds especially good.
    Why don’t you live closer??? I would help you eat this!

I'd love to hear from you!
