Asian Zucchini Noodle Salad Recipe

leave a comment »

So I made this recipe today, after getting this zucchini-noodle maker. (It’s apparently called a spiralizer.) It works moderately well, with some drawbacks: it doesn’t quite finish the zucchini and an uncut small-diameter core is left (but easily chopped for the salad). What surprised me: zucchini noodles have a fair amount of tensile strength, and the device makes very long noodles. They are hard to toss in a salad since they tend to stick together in a tangled ball.

I did like the salad, though, and I think I’ll make it again, only next time I’ll use scissors to cut through the mass of noodles, reducing them to shorter lengths and (I hope) reduce the intertwining. I think a more substantial machine, one like this, will probably do a better job, but then I would have a special-purpose machine taking up storage room. I think I’ll wait a while to see how often I do this.

It is a good salad, though.

UPDATE: Link to recipe fixed. Thanks, Joanne.
