Vegetable Zoodle Salad

Everyone has seen spiralized food by now. After looking at this nifty machine for the past year I finally broke down and bought the Paderno spiralizer. We’ve now had it for about a week now and I’m completely sold on what it can do and I basically want to spiral everything in my pantry and fridge.

Not joking.

Vegetable Zoodle Salad

So after picking out a delicious and juicy pork chop to grill this past weekend I decided it was going to be paired with this easy Vegetable Zoodle Salad. The dressing is a very easy Lemon Vinaigrette and it basically comes from ingredients that you already have on hand. This vinaigrette would also pair nicely with any salad that you might make at home.

My daughter loved the zoodle salad so much that after eating all the spiralized vegetables she was submerging her fingers into the leftover dressing.

If you have problems getting your kids to eat vegetables I highly recommend buying one of these spiralizer machines. Every vegetable/fruit we have used my daughter has eaten and she didn’t even give it a second thought. I also put her to work on helping the vegetables/fruits get their curl.

This Vegetable Zoodle Salad is perfect for any dinner or BBQ get together. My tip is to make it ahead of time so the vegetables can marinate in the vinaigrette for at least 30+ minutes.

  1. Given my past weekend of gluttony, I definitely need a big bowl of this salad!!

  2. This salad looks incredible! So light and refreshing. I totally need a spiralizer STAT!

  3. Love the addition of spiralized apples! These noodles are so light and healthy and I love the lemony vinaigrette!

  4. This is my kind of salad! I recently bought a spiralizer and am always looking for ways to use it. Love the addition of apples to the salad!

  5. I made this salad for dinner and my hubby actually agreed to have it again. He is not crazy about a lot of veggies but was open to this. My carrot wasn’t that thick so it was hard to get a really good spiral and we don’t like a lot of vinaigrette so instead of allowing it to soak, we sprinkled it on. Plus the kiddos ate it! Thanks for sharing this!
