Coodles! With Recipes for Italian Dressing and Salad Supreme

Our Spiralizer arrived in the mail, and we wasted NO time checking it out.  
We used the thick "noodle" blade on 2 cucumbers, the thin blade on 1 green pepper, and the wide blade on a yellow squash. 
Then I made a quick "spaghetti salad" with our coodles. 
Coodle "Spaghetti" Salad

I tossed the noodles with some tomato, celery and radishes. Pretty much whatever you would put in a pasta salad. (Olives, compliant salami, etc.) I put just a little bit of Italian dressing and sprinkled some salad supreme over top.  Mixed it up and watched my husband and 5 year old "fight" over the fork.  When the boys woke up (3 and almost 2 years old) they finished off the bowl.  So simple and tasty!

Italian Dressing :
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper 
2 cloves garlic, or 1 tsp granulated 
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp  basil 
Pinch of marjoram 
Punch of parsley 

Place all ingredients in a mason jar and shake! (Fresh herbs are super tasty too.)

Salad Supreme:
2 tsp Toasted Sesame Seeds
1 tsp Poppy Seeds
1/2 tsp Celery Seeds
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Real or Pink Salt
1 tsp Granulated Garlic
1/2 tsp Black Pepper 
1/4 tsp Cayenne 

I make at least 4 batches at a time.  I line up little jelly sized mason jars, and put one batch in each one.  I put a whole container in a pound of pasta, so you'll have to adjust accord to how many "noodles" you have.

Will you try it? What would your "mix ins" be?

  1. Love it!! Love it!! Had a big bulky food processor for spiralizer my zucchini and what a bundle something it was. This is small and light and handy to use...no heavy machine to drag out of cabinet. This works as well as the food processor and I will use it more often because it does not take up so much counter space.
