I often crave teriyaki sauce. I think it stems from my love affair with teriyaki tofu stir fries, which were the first dinner meals I learned how to make in my college apartment.
Usually when I crave teriyaki, it’s with chicken or shrimp and then I’m torn as to what to serve the protein with.
Thankfully, now, I have this spiralized sesame salad in my recipe arsenal and of course, so do you!
This salad couldn’t get any easier – you just toss everything together in a bowl! It’s perfect for those last minute, “What do I make for dinner?” situations.
So what can you pair it with? Teriyaki grilled chicken, some chili shrimp, or even just add some quinoa and avocado, and you have a light sesame salad.
If you are having trouble finding large enough carrots for the spiralizer, try subbing in zucchini noodles – they’ll work great as well, just let them sit a bit longer so they can soften up.
That’s all I have in regards to today’s recipe! In other news, tomorrow, I’m officially announcing an exciting new project I’ve been working on, going live on YouTube TONIGHT at 8pm, so make sure you’re subscribe to my YouTube channel to get alerted once the video and announcement is posted (announcement will be in the description of the video, but I’ll announce it on the blog tomorrow!)
Can’t wait to share with you what I’ve been working on behind the scenes…
