Frequently, when I post a recipe, I will type this.

” And my kids gobbled it up.”

That did not happen this time, as both of my kiddos, wrinkled their noses and threw their cucumber noodles on the floor.

But I thought this salad was Delicious!

I had low expectations for cucumber noodles, and I actually thought that they turned out wonderfully.  I tossed the noodles with a calamondin vinaigrette.   Don’t know where to purchase Calamondins?   Check out the Calamondin Cafe.

My mom bought me this fancy vegetable spirilizer, and I finally got it out.  I have spirilizd everything in my kitchen, and I have actually had a few recipes disasters.  πŸ™‚ But some of my creations have turned out really well.  I can’t tell you how fun this is!

I think that adding anything you would usually add to a pasta salad would go well with these cucumber noodles.  Tomatoes, olives, peppers, and your favorite dressing.  The cucumber noodles actually take quite well to a vinaigrette.

I also whipped up this WONDERFUL calamondin vinaigrette to go with these noodles.  I seriously think that the simplest dressings always taste best.  This was a wonderful, fresh, crunchy and citrusy salad to enjoy on this cold winter day.   Reminds me of summer.  We will be there soon folks πŸ™‚  We will be there soon.
