Greek Salad is my absolute favorite, and spiralizing it gives it a slight variation that makes my weekday lunch seem less boring and more exciting. Sometimes its all about tricking your mind to make it feel like you are satisfying those mid week cravings.
Most spiralized recipes I see involve zucchini and are termed zoodles. Zucchini is, I must admit, my least favorite vegetable of all time. I despise it, but I don’t mind it nearly as much raw and spiralized. For this salad instead of zoodles I opted for cucumber, which also spiralizes really well and tastes wonderful in Greek salad, since that’s what authentic greek salads call for anyway. I guess you call spiralized cucumber coodles? No idea.
You can go crazy getting a fancy spiralizer, and I’ll be honest I don’t use mine too often so I have a small version that works perfectly well for the amount of time I use it.
