It’s that time of year when we all internally decide we only want to cook outdoors… or not cook at all.

Obviously I can’t condone not cooking. Especially if that means living off take-out for the rest of the season. However, I fully understand the desire to spend more time in the gorgeous spring weather, and less time over a hot stove.

One popular raw dish you should give a try is “zoodles”… AKA a zucchini noodles recipe.

By shredding zucchini with a spiralizer, you can create long raw noodle strands.

Spiralizers are inexpensive, and a fun kitchen tool to have on hand. We’ve used ours to make apple noodles for fruit salad, raw beet and sweet potato salads, and even cut potatoes for curly matchstick fries.
