A few tips:

  • Use fresh and crunchy vegetables for this salad and not the once that are tuning wrinkly and a bit sad (use them to make a lovely stir fry, fried rice, stew, lasagna or roasted vegetables).
  • This salad can be made raw, but you can also quickly fry the bell pepper, carrot, cabbage and zucchini noodles if you want them slightly warm. But don’t fry them for too long, no more than 1 1/2 minute. This salad bowl should still be very fresh and crunchy.
  • Use your favorite noodles to make this bowl. I used shirataki noodles.
  • One of my best tips when making a salad or salad bowl is to cut the vegetables in different shapes and forms. Like here we have spiralized noodles, shaved carrot, thinly sliced cabbage, and long stripes of red bell pepper. This makes the salad more interesting than if you cut all the vegetables into the same shape.
  • Serve this salad as it is or top it with you favorite protein.
