This rainbow noodle salad is a healthy, fun, and colorful dish that’s made entirely of vegetable noodles. A creamy avocado-lime dressing makes it extra flavorful!

This spiralizer recipe has a nice mix of textures and different flavors. The carrots, beets, and apple add some sweetness.

The Asian-inspired dressing is tangy, creamy, and refreshing. The chopped nuts add some crunch. The chives add a bit of sharpness.

This spiralized salad is a great option for those who just don’t like lettuce.

You’re getting a ton of nutrients and flavors in here, and the “noodles” make it more interesting, I think.

I tested this recipe out at my sister’s and my annual picnic.

The picnic was a little late this year, but better late than never! She liked it and is obnoxiously hard to please, so pretty sure you’ll like it too. 😉

The raw beets give this salad its magical color. I’ve actually made way more beet recipes for this blog that you’d expect from someone who doesn’t looove beets. I’ve come to the conclusion that they’re better raw. That “dirt” taste that doesn’t resonate with some of us seems to somewhat disappear when the beets remain uncooked. If you like beets, you may also like my beet and berry smoothieroasted beet hummus recipe, or my other spiralized beet salad recipe. 🙂

I spiralized all the vegetables on the same setting, so it isn’t really too time-consuming or painful to spiralize them all. This recipe is actually pretty fast to make, even with the from-scratch blender dressing.

    Sounds great. I’m considering giving this a shot but using pickled beets. Has anyone tried it with pickled beets?

      I think it would be good! Probably more tangy, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t make a tasty side dish. Let me know if you try!
