When I was approached by High Street TV to try the new addition to the NutriFamily, the Veggie Bullet, I jumped at the opportunity! I use my NutriBullet almost every day, be it to make healthy smoothies, grind up spices or create nut butters the NutriBullet can do it all.
Well the Veggie Bullet is just as diverse! It can slice, shred and spiralise your veggies in no time!
I’ve created this salad with texture in mind. Each vegetable provides a new texture to the dish, which in turn makes you feel even more full and satisfied!
I’ve served mine in a jar as it keeps the salad crisp and fresh whilst out and about as the dressing is at the bottom, but if you’re planning to eat it right away just add all the ingredients and the dressing to a bowl and combine!
Ingredients- (For two portions)
- 2 tbsp. Smooth peanut butter
- 2 tbsp. Rice wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp. Soy sauce
- 1 tsp. Sesame oil
- 2 tsp. White sugar
- 3 tbsp. Vegetable oil
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 cucumber
- 1 carrot
- 1 yellow pepper
- large handful of sugar snap peas
- large handful of spinach
- small handful of peanuts – crushed
- Start by making the dressing. Add all the dressing ingredients into a Tupperware box, lock on the lid and SHAKE! It’s that simple!
Tip: Make sure you taste your dressing. You may want to add more lime to taste or even a splash of water to loosen it a little (bare in mind the veggies will give off water that will thin out the dressing anyway.) You could even add some chilli if you want your salad to have a kick!
Now it’s time to make the salad!
- I started by spiralising the cucumber in my Veggie Bullet, it couldn’t be easier and is so satisfying to watch too!
- Pop your spiralised cucumber in a bowl to one side.
- Next all you have to do is swap the attachments in your Veggie Bullet and add the ‘chute’ lid and you’re ready to slice your pepper for the next salad component.
- Now onto the carrot – I used a vegetable peeler to create ‘ribbons’ – another texture! But if you want you could spiralise the carrot instead.
- Top and tail some sugar snap peas for some sweet crunch.
- Combine all your veggies and the dressing or layer them with the dressing at the bottom. Finish the salad off with a handful of spinach leaves and some crushed peanuts.
- It’s that easy!
