If you’re looking to save on carbs AND increase your veggie consumption, you’ll want to try a Spiralizer.  It’s one of the better contraptions I’ve seen in a long time when it comes to kitchen tools!  It turns veggies into “noodles” and makes cooking a bit more fun.  The recipe below is very basic, but yummy, and is a good place to start practicing using your new gadget!

 Ingredients:

Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
2-4 medium zucchinis
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 large ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced into bite sized pieces
Feta cheese to taste
Cooked chicken or salami (optional)

Directions:

Spiralize the zucchini according to directions and desired thickness.  Cut the zucchini into shorter strands to make them easier to eat.  Add the cherry tomatoes and avocado and mix well.  Add dressing and feta cheese to taste.  To make a complete meal, add cooked chicken or salami to the salad.
