It’s the heat of the summer and the lettuce has bolted. This super easy recipe is a great way to create summer salads without lettuce, and if you have a spiralizer it makes this salad a cinch! Feel free to add any other veggies you have on hand – like chopped broccoli, cauliflower or bell pepper. The more colorful the better!
INGREDIENTS – serves 4
1 or 2 zucchini or summer squash – juilienne or spiralize
1 or 2 carrots – juilienne or spiralize
1 turnip – juilienne or spiralize
1 or 2 scallions – sliced very thin.
1/4 cup chopped herbs (optional – we used a mix of parsley and basil)
1 tablespoon vinegar (we used white wine, but you could try rice or cider)
1 tablespoon coarse mustard (or use regular dijon)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Salt and Pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS – whisk together the dressing ingredients, you should have enough to cover up to 4 cups of veggies. Top the veggies with as much of the dressing as you like. Mix and serve. Leftover dressing can be refrigerated for another use.
