Romesco sauce coats the cauliflower, spiralized potatoes, and greens for a spicy, flavorful salad. Lentils are a powerful, vegetarian protein for this veggie-packed, gluten-free meal.
There are so many ways to prepare a salad, but we can all get in a salad rut, where we make the same boring chopped salad over and over again.
With your spiralizer, you can instantly add excitement to your everyday salad by spiralizing the vegetables instead of chopping or slicing them! Some spiralized onions, zucchini, cucumber, bell peppers – veggies you’d normally add to a salad are more fun to eat and add more texture and heartiness when they’re in noodle form.
One of my favorite ways to use the spiralizer for salads is to spiralize potatoes. Potato noodles aren’t just for side dishes or pasta bakes, they add a salty, savory, starchy flavor to salads! You don’t feel like you’re eating a salad – it’s like a bowl meal that happens to have lettuce in it!
I also get in a dressing rut with salads – I tend to use the same dressing over and over again (vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard, and salt and pepper). I never think to use a sauce and toss it in a salad, like here, with this incredible romesco sauce.
Romesco sauce is a Spanish almond and roasted red pepper sauce that’s the perfect balance of salty and spicy. It’s seriously robust, totally making for a more exciting, flavorful salad.
I packed this salad with healthy fiber-filled lentils and cauliflower for an all-around healthy, nutritious, and filling salad you’ll want to make – and enjoy the leftovers!
