Happy Friday!!! Who is ready for the weekend? Do you have any fun things planned? We are headed out of town tonight for a friend’s wedding and I can’t wait! I love weddings! But before I start packing (yeah..still haven’t started) I have a new favorite recipe to share with you all!
Even though it is technically fall, the 82 degree weather yesterday hardly leaves me craving warm soup. This recipe is perfect for the in between summer/fall season when you just aren’t quite ready for hearty warm meals, but are still feeling festive!
I am all about my spiralizer these days. It is such a simple kitchen gadget, but it can make boring vegetables so much more fun. I think I got mine on amazon for around $30.
Tri-Colored Spiralized Salad With Orange Zest Vinaigrette
Serves 2 as a meal or 4 as a side dish.
1 beet, peeled
1/4 cup dried cranberries
goat cheese (add to your liking)
Orange Zest Vinaigrette
3 garlic cloves
zest and juice of 1 orange
2 TBL onion, chopped
1 TBL honey
1/2 cup olive oil
1/8 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
After peeling the beet and washing the cucumber and apple, spiralize all 3 and add to a bowl.
Next, add all vinaigrette ingredients in the food processor and blend until mixed. You will have extra salad dressing. You can store it in the fridge for up to a week.
Pour vinaigrette over spiralized ingredients and toss.
Next, add walnuts, dried cranberries and goat cheese and toss.
Add orange zest strips for some extra color!
This salad is the perfect light fall meal and looks beautiful next to fall table decor. ENJOY!!!
Have a wonderful weekend friends!!
