Spiralize It! And Win a Paderno Spiralizer from Williams-Sonoma

Related To:

Sometimes you just need to take your produce for a spin — or, in this case, a spiral. Easy to use and with a small countertop footprint, the Paderno Spiralizer can turn most firm fruits and vegetables into neat piles of curlicues of all sizes, destined for dishes like salads, stir-fries and pasta. This fun shape may even entice picky eaters to bulk up on their veggies.

Want to get curling on your veggies? Try them in all sorts of creations:

  • Swap out half or all of your pasta with zucchini or yellow squash noodles. Toss them in at the last minute; the residual heat will cook them through.
  • Finish your stir-fry with spirals of carrots.
  • Spiralize an apple and mix it with cabbage the next time you make coleslaw.
  • Give the classic salad combo of beets, walnuts and goat cheese a makeover with a roasted beet spiral.
  • Try blanched sweet potato ribbons in place of noodles in your pad thai or peanut-sesame noodles.

Or, make this Curlicue Salad: Spiralize some firm vegetables like carrots, green and yellow squash, cucumbers and radishes, then toss with your favorite vinaigrette or creamy salad dressing. Twirl with a fork or eat with chopsticks! Tell us what veggie you'd like to spiralize, below, and you could win a Paderno Spiralizer from Williams-Sonoma!
