I have never loved a salad as much as this one. The texture and form mimics a bowl of pasta and the flavors are in the centre of my food happy place. THIS is my kind of salad.
It’s easy to make and satisfying. Just give the zucchini and carrot noodles a quick sauté, dress them up with tahini sauce and a handful of roasted peanuts. It’s a wholesome, veggie-packed meal, that takes no more than 15 minutes to prepare.
