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 smoothie, roasted 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.
This spiralized superfood salad will hit the spot if you're in the mood for something healthy.
Will you make this spiralized vegetable noodle salad? I bet you'll love that creamy avocado 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!
This was delicious! The zucchini was very easy to spiralize, but I had difficulty with the beet, carrot and apple. I ended up shredding what I couldn’t spiralize. I will definitely be making this again, but I think I will make it into a slaw instead. The flavours are absolutely decadent!! Yum! Thanks for much for sharing. I look forward to trying more of your recipes.
I'm so happy you liked it, Jenn!! 🙂 Yeah, those veggies were a bit tougher for me to spiralize as well. I wonder if some brands of spiralizer work less well...
Utterly delicious! We loved this !
So happy to hear it! Thanks!

Do you have any nutritional info for this recipe? I am on Weight Watchers and was wondering how many points
Hi Renee! I don't, I'm afraid. I'm not a trained nutritionist, so beyond calorie counts (I calculate them on some recipes), I don't trust that I'd do it properly or that an online calculator is accurate. You could probably plug the exact ingredients you're planning on using into an online calculator and that would give you a good enough estimate, hopefully. Calories will vary depending on the size of the veggies and how accurately you measure and such.
