Avocado Egg Salad with Spiralized Cucumbers

First off, thanks to each and everyone of you for all of your kind words and messages of support and encouragement yesterday on my 5 years in business post. I’m so grateful for all of you, and I’m pumped for our next 5 years together!

I still remember that excitement waking up the next day after a full day “in business.” I felt like anything could happen! And you know what? I still feel like that. It’s a great feeling to wake up every day and be excited to work!

Avocado Egg Salad with Spiralized Cucumbers

So let’s get back to what I started Inspiralized for: to share healthy recipe ideas for your spiralizer!

I’ve always hated mayonnaise (okay, hate is a strong word – but I strongly dislike it), and I’ve always looked for alternatives: dairy and non-dairy. Avocado is one of my favorite healthy swaps for mayo and today, I’m using it in a dairy-free egg salad, atop a bed of spiralized cucumbers!

Cucumber noodles (er, “coodles”) are the new lettuce. Instead of serving a mayo-based salad (egg, tuna, chicken, etc) over salad greens, use spiralized cucumbers instead. The cucumber noodles are refreshing, hydrating and of course, so much more enjoyable to eat than boring old greens.

This recipe works with chicken or tuna as well, just swap in your desired protein! And the gorgeous red radishes are a fancy garnish that add extra crunch, nutrients and flavor!

Do you think this would keep well as a meal-prep lunch for the week?
Carly Glazer says:
Hi Alisha! You could definitely prep the cucumbers and egg ahead of time! The avocado might be a little tricky since they tend to brown quickly!
John says:
I gave this a try and it turned out great. The only tweaks I made were adding juice from a 1/2 lime and a pinch of dried red chili flakes. The lime juice helped to keep the avocado from browning and the chili flakes provided a little kick. :-)
Carly Glazer says:
Sounds amazing!
Mieke says:

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
