I originally shared this recipe on June 9, 2011. I have updated the images and some of the text today.

I love my spiralizer! Do you have one yet? Not only is it fun to use, but you can turn so many veggies into long noodle-like strands that are delicious to throw into so many different dishes. It was perfect for the cucumber in this coleslaw and bonus that it removed the seeds too! Also, I leave the skin on because it looks so pretty.

You could also use a mandoline to cut the cucumbers into long skinny matchsticks, a.k.a. julienne-cut.  I run the cucumbers down the mandoline blade lengthwise to make julienne strips about 4-inches long. Some cukes have a lot of seeds, so you can omit that part if you want. I have cut European cucumbers this way before and it works really well. Just cut them into four-inch lengths first.

Then all that’s left to do is thinly slice the cabbage {here’s how to do that} and whisk together the dressing, which is made with nutty peanut oil and lime juice. The roasted and salted (oh yes!) peanuts really compliment the tangy slightly sweet dressing and then the bright pop of cilantro rounds everything out to make one gorgeous and delicious salad!

Speaking of salad…

May is Salad Month on Healthy Seasonal Recipes. Every year I make salads, salad dressings and other such salady goodies for the entire month. You can browse all the Salad Month recipes here.

Please note, I say that this makes 6 servings, because for the mere mortals out there who eat only a reasonable amount of salad, one and a half cups is plenty. But if you’re a salad freak like me, this is more like two servings.
