  • 1/2 medium Zucchini spiralized on the thin blade C (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 English Cucumber spiralized on the thin blade C (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 medium Red Onion spiralized on the flat blade A
  • 1/2 cup Pomegranate Seeds

For Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup Peanut Sunflower or Almond Butter (or nut-free Soy Butter of choice)

  • 3-4 Tbsp freshly squeezed Orange Juice
  • 3-4 Tbsp freshly squeezed Lime Juice
  • 2-3 tsp fresh Ginger grated on a micro-plane, to taste

  1. In a small bowl whisk first 5 of the dressing ingredients, start with 2 tsp ginger, thinning with more orange or lime juice (or a few drops of water) if necessary.
