Cucumber Noodles - Tossed in Asian Sauce and Plated with Peanut on Top

Helloooooooo 2015!!!!!!

Now that it’s the start of a new year, it feels like the internet has exploded with healthy recipes, and here I am about to add another. BUT, you guys know that I only post healthy recipes if they’re delicious, and I think this is one worth sharing. This is one of my regular favorites that I make for lunch (sometimes I add chicken).

In order to make this, you’re going to need a spiralizer. This is definitely one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, and I gave one to my stepmom for Christmas. It’s just so much fun for veggie recipe creation and I use it all the time.

Spiralized Cucumber Salad - in Bowl with Fork Twirling Noodles

Making this dish is very, very simple. So much so, that it’s kind of an “unrecipe.”

Just spiralize the cucumber:

Then toss it in a quick asian dressing made with soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, sriracha, and honey:

Mix the two together, then add some chopped peanuts:
