It’s definitely been a while since I’ve whipped out my inspiralizer, I’ve forgotten how much I love it! Usually I slightly saute the veggies I inspiralize. This time I kept them raw. And you know what? I think I like them better raw!

They have more of a crunch when you leave them raw and honestly it tastes better, PLUS your not cooking them in oil or losing some of the nutrients through the cooking process.

Raw veggies from now on! (or at least when I’m turning them to noodles)

PS if you don’t have one of these Inspiralizers you NEED to get one. It is one of my favorite tools in the kitchen!

This salad was born out of the fact that I was lazy and didn’t want to cook chicken, so I opted for store bought Rotisserie Chicken.

Sometimes my best recipes are born out of pure laziness … and I’m sure yours are too. Or even out of those, “let’s clear out the frig and throw everything into one pot” moments… am I right?

After I shredded the chicken I inspiralized some zucchini for the base of my salad. Then I added a few vegetables, fresh herbs and created a light refreshing dressing that has a little bit a heat to it from fresh ground chili paste.

  1. Krista, this salad looks absolutely fabulous! It looks like a delicious low-carb alternative noodle salad, and that sesame-infused dressing sounds out of this world. Sesame oil is one of my favourite foods ever! It just makes so many salads as well as hot dishes taste just divine 🙂

    This is fantastic! I used Thai marinated grilled chicken breast and other than that followed instructions exactly. I will definitely make it again!
