There’s a reason this trend has caught on with home cooks. Spiralized vegetables make dishes like our Shaved Zucchini Salad with Parmigiano and Pistachios interesting by introducing texture. Crunchy curls of raw carrots, red peppers, or cabbage are great for Asian and Southern slaws. It can be a time saver as well; spiralized root vegetables like beets or butternut squash cook in the oven in less than fifteen minutes.
Is there a lone piece of produce sitting in your fridge? Are you looking for an easy dinner for one? Pull out the Spiralizer; it spins a single vegetable into a pile of noodles. Those noodles are what put spiralizing on the map and, while we would never give up real pasta, it’s fun to experiment with lighter vegetable noodles. Zucchini spirals into a particularly toothsome yet pliant noodle (or “zoodle”). Try pairing them with bold sauces like Grace Parisi’s velvety butter, lemon thyme, tarragon and Parmesan sauce or our chunky summer tomato marinara.
Our spiralizer recipes aren’t just about sneaking more nutrients into your meal. We spiralize potatoes into long strands for our extra crispy latkes and grill skewers of summer squash ribbons with prosciutto.
Scroll through the slideshow for a collection of easy, flavorful recipes that will put your Spiralizer to work, and totally justify the lost counter space.

Shaved Zucchini Salad with Parmigiano and Pistachios
One of the wonderful things about winemaker Louis-Michel Liger-Belair's lemony salad is that it's so quick to make. Since the zucchini is served raw, be sure to use the smallest, freshest ones you can find. The salad can be garnished with pistachios, which add a little sweetness, or Italian pine nuts.GO TO RECIPE
Green Bean Slaw
In this salad, tender haricots verts get tossed with crunchy strips of carrot, red pepper and parsnip. When TV personality Rachael Ray (who is originally from upstate New York) visited the Beekman farm, Lee Woolver made a version of this salad with bacon, but it's just as delicious without.GO TO RECIPE
