Shaved Veggie Salad

Share

This recipe was a happy accident. It came out of me just playing around at mealtime, trying to serve the kids veggies in a way other than roasted, steamed or cut up raw with a dip.

I love using my Mandoline Slicer because it makes cutting up foods like vegetables a breeze. You can set it to slice veggies from thick to paper-thin. And even though my kids love watching me use it in the kitchen, I wasn't expecting them to take to my little food experiment. After all, to them, salad is still salad. But Kenya loves pickles and other tart foods, so I was hoping that a splash of vinegar would steer him in the direction of loving this dish -- and it did. I was really shocked, though, when Chloe (our 17 month old), gobbled up three portions in one sitting! Sometimes just using a cool kitchen tool and adding the right seasoning will transform something your kids normally wouldn't bat an eye at into something fun and delicious.

    My mother makes something like this but we let it marinate overnight or a couple of days…we use mainly carrots and daikons. Radishes are great too. We normally eat these with lemongrass chicken kabobs.

    I am totally bummed to report that my family (a bunch of veggie lovers!)did not enjoy this salad. I used super fresh veggies and it looked great on the table, but the flavors just didn’t pop. If I were to make this again I would keep the three veggie blend, but would do something different for the dressing. Oh, well…experimenting is half the fun in the kitchen anyway!

      I agree. Not the best flavor. Worth trying…

    Hosting a big dinner party this weekend. Is there any reason I could not prepare all my veggies in the morning, put them in a zipper bag in the fridge, then put the dressing on when I serve it??

    I love rice wine vinegar. Will have to try this. My daughter actually loves salad–if it’s spinach+strawberries or anything with feta!

    Yum. I must dig out my mandoline. I am finding my finicky eater is becoming more adventureous. We just recently discovered the many joys of celery seeds, a light sprinkling would be good on this salad!
