Pesto Spiral Salad 

Pesto Spiral Salad 

I made this just after I found an old housemate had left a spiraliser in the cupboard and decided I immediately had to spiralise whatever I could get my hands on (which ended up literally being my hands, these things are vicious)

Anyway, spiralising an entire cucumber seemed like a good place to start and before you know it this salad was created. It’s become an obsession and now I’m sat on a train wondering would spiralised red peppers work and would a butternut squash be a ridiculous amount of effort?!

Ultimately I’ve discovered there is no limit to what you could spiralise (but perhaps a limit on what you should)

Serves 1 as a main meal, 2 as an accompaniment

Ingredients

Salad 

  • 1 cucumber
  • Handful mozzarella balls
  • 1 red pepper roughly chopped
  • 1 avocado roughly chopped
  • Handful cherry tomatoes
  • Half a bag of rocket
  • 2 spring onions finely sliced

Pesto

  1. Bunch basil
  2. 3 tbsp olive oil
  3. 2 garlic cloves
  4. 50g nuts of some sort

Method 

  1. Roughly chop your pepper and avocado, slice your toms in half and spiralise your cucumber!
  2. Now make your pesto – add all ingredients to a blender and blend until fully mixed, if it’s a bit thick or not sticking together add a bit more oil
  3. In a large bowl add rocket, your chopped peppers and avocado, the cucumber and mozzarella. Cover in the pesto mix and stir until everything is covered
  4. Sprinkle over your spring onions

Enjoy!
