Carrot, Peanut, Ginger & Lime Salad


Inspired by a recent Buzzfeed article on salads made with a spiralizer, I reached into my cupboards, wiped the dust of mine and gave this recipe a go.  It blew me away and I am now back to spiralizing everything I can get my hands on!  This is one of the best salads I’ve eaten for a while and I could eat this all day long.  I may start to look orange at this rate as I’ve been munching this at least 3 times a week since making it.

The sweetness of the carrot combined with the sharpness of the ginger and lime is delicious. Add a peanut butter and coconut sauce and you have a wonderful refreshing dish.   Although I used peanut butter, other nut butters would be just as good.  The Chief Taster thought the garlic was strong and could do with just one clove, but I liked the kick of the garlic.  If you are not as big a fan of garlic as me, reduce the garlic to one clove.
