Add a bowl of this pretty Cranberry Zucchini Slaw to your dinner table this summer. Fresh veggies with sweet and salty nuts and berries makes a refreshing side dish.
Hello, my name is Jocelyn, and I am a kitchen tool junkie. We absolutely love going into different kitchen stores and looking at all the fun gadgets and gizmos. There are so many different tools with different uses.
Sure, you could buy them all and have drawers and drawers full of tools you will never use after that first time. Most of the time we just look without touching when we stop in these stores.
Of course, there are the times when I think I need a potato masher…3 different times. Yes, three times I picked up a potato masher and thought, “oh, I could really use one of these”. At one time I owned 3 potato mashers because I honestly didn’t remember buying the other ones. Some days I wonder at my own sanity! LOL!
A few years ago when spiralized veggies starting becoming popular, I was convinced I needed a spiralizer in my life. Who doesn’t want a machine that creates fun noodles out of just about any vegetable, right?
So, off to Amazon I went and bought one that sounded like it would work great for the price. Amazon prime is my friend and my enemy!
2 years later I just pulled the “much needed” spiralizer out of the box and used it for the very first time! Yes, you just read that correctly. That little machine has been sitting in the box ever since I got it. #foodiefail
Usually every summer I buy a bunch of zucchinis because hello, this chocolate chip zucchini bread has to happen multiple times. But this time, I decided to finally pull out that neglected machine and try something different.
Holy cow!!! It is a blast creating curly veggies! I don’t know why I waited so long to try this fun machine! I seriously want to create spirals out of everything in my fridge. Carrots, cucumbers, potatoes, apples…nothing is safe now!
For this easy salad, I used 2 small-medium zucchinis. Once they had been transformed into about 4 cups of curls, I chopped them up into smaller pieces for this easy cranberry zucchini slaw. You could also use a grater or a knife to make tiny pieces.
Cranberries and sunflower seeds added a sweet and salty flavor to the tangy yogurt dressing. This easy salad is the perfect dish to bring to picnics. No one will ever know they are actually eating a healthy salad…well, ok, the green might give it away.
