Favorite Salad of the Moment

Did I tell you that I love my spiralizer?!?!?!

My favorite salad of the moment is one zucchini, 1/2 cucumber and a carrot all spiralized together. I also add 1/3 of a chopped red bell pepper. It looks like this before I add the spicy Thai peanut dressing.

Spicy Thai Peanut Dressing

1 TBSP creamy peanut butter
1/2 TBSP rice vinegar
1/2 TBSP honey
1 tsp water
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 TBSP sesame oil
pinch of cayenne pepper
pinch of salt
more than a pinch of red pepper flakes

Whisk everything together. Add the oil last and continue whisking until smooth. 

I don't measure the ingredients too closely. I like the heat balanced with the sweetness of the honey and peanut butter.
