Spiralized R Us
But this time -- oh, THIS time -- I'm the first person I know to have taken the bait, and I am enchanted.
I bought my Spiralizer a couple of weeks ago. The super deluxe four-blade model from Williams Sonoma. I didn't buy the cookbook they pushed on me, and I've not regretted that a bit. Pinterest has been my friend, along with my own imagination.
They day I brought it home, I spiralized cooked beets and made a gorgeous salad with them, some arugula, walnuts and nice white goat cheese crumbles. Spiralized pears and zucchini made a bed for a sliced strawberry salad (light poppyseed dressing). Even Himself got into the act, spiralizing sweet potato fries one night. Remember the classic carrot/raisin/crushed pineapple salad? It's gorgeous with spiralized carrots.
The darned thing is well-designed, compact, has four blades, is easy to clean, dishwasher friendly, and takes up only a little space. My understanding that the idea is to make "noodles" from zucchini and use them in place of pasta. I haven't done that. I don't foresee doing that. But I'm so glad I got this gadget. I laugh with delight each time I use it.
