Spiralized Beetroot Apple and Goat’s Cheese Salad

The spiralizer is transforming healthy eating, pasta doesn’t just have to be for carb-loading anymore. You can transform your old favourite pasta dishes into veggie filled new classics. This dish mixes spiralized beetroot and apple, combined with goat’s cheese and crumbled pecans for a hearty, earthy lunch or dinner. It also works well as a side dish with pork or chicken.

I love using my Spiralizer but hate washing it, luckily the deal that Tom and I have is I cook, he washes – it means I usually make quite a mess in the kitchen knowing that I don’t have to clean it up! The beetroot was particularly messy. We often spiralize courgette for Bolognese, sweet potato/Butternut squash for noodles in a stir fry or with a curry to increase the veggie content.

For those that have asked in the past – I have the Spiralite Spiralizer which I love and bought for multiple family members this Christmas!
