Happy National Noodle Day!
Yes, that’s a thing and it is today and I’m totally owning this holiday.
On a day like the National Noodle Day, I can’t help but think about how spiralizing has totally changed the way I view the word “noodle.”
When you say noodle, I think “veggie noodle.” How cool is that? Back in February of 2013, I thought of noodles as my carb-enemy. I never truly ate a bowl of noodles without feeling slight regret and guilt.
Now? I haven’t used the word “regret” or “guilt” when referring to food since I started spiralizing.
Today, we have a recipe that uses apple noodles – which are way cooler than sliced or diced apples in salads. The apples actually transform this meal into something exciting.
Don’t be intimidated by scallops – they’re actually one of the easiest, quickest seafoods to cook – just a couple minutes per side will do the trick!
To simplify this recipe, use raw walnuts or prepare the spiced walnuts ahead of time – that’s really the only somewhat time-consuming part of this recipe.
This salad incorporates the flavors of the season – maple, cinnamon, and apple!
Now, go enjoy your big bowl of vegetable noodles! If there’s ever a time, it’s today!
