Ingredients

Ginger Miso Dressing:

Salad:

  • 1 medium-sized cucumber spiralized
  • 1/2 small-medium carrot julienned
  • 1/2 small onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta
  • 2 tablespoons lightly salted peanuts crushed
  • Fresh basil mint, or cilantro
  • Fresh lime to squeeze on top
  • Crushed red pepper flakes optional

Instructions

  • Whisk together all ingredients for the dressing and set aside for now (you can make this up to 3 days ahead and store it covered in the fridge).
  • Right before serving, spiralizer the cucumber, and gently toss it with the carrot and onion in the dressing.
  • Transfer the salad to a serving bowl and top with the feta, peanuts, and fresh herbs. Sprinkle on a couple pinches of crushed red pepper flakes if desired, and serve with lime wedges to squeeze on top.

Notes

  • Net Carbs: 12g per serving (1/2 of recipe)
  • Seedless cucumber (also called English cucumber or hothouse cucumber) work best for spiralizing.
