I love using my julienne veggie peeler to death. Don’t know how I lived without it all these years?! Ha, funny. Surely it is a very useful tool to have. I julienned some zucchinis to mimic spaghetti. Then I plain roasted cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. Mostly because they were the only veggies I had on hand after my weekend grocery haul. I sauteed some garlic chips in hot EVOO along with red pepper flakes, tossed zucchini strings for a minute or so, added all the roasted veggies and a touch of salt, balsamic vinegar and voila..I am on my way to having a marvellous, greatly nutritious, not-at-all-boring salad. I added grilled shrimps for protein. Next time, I will julienne different colored bell peppers and try chicken! Clearly, the sky is the limit when we make salads like this. And the brownie point for my salad is that it doesn’t require additional dressing.
