Let the spiralizer do all the work for you and then enjoy a fresh, crisp, crunchy apple salad with a mild vinaigrette dressing that comes together in minutes. You can use whatever apples you like just as long as they're fresh and have a firm texture. To keep the apples crisp, add the vinaigrette dressing right before serving.

  • Cut Granny Smith and Red Delicious apples into noodles using a spiralizer fitted with the large shredding blade.

  • Place apple noodles in a large bowl and toss with lime juice to keep them from turning brown. Pour in dressing; mix gently until salad is combined.

  • Place pine nuts in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Toast pine nuts, shaking often, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle pine nuts over salad.

Cook's Notes:

If you don't have white balsamic vinegar, good substitutes would be rice vinegar or white wine vinegar (you want a mild-flavored vinegar, not cider vinegar).

There are many brands of spiralizers. The chipper (large shredder) blade referred to in this recipe is from the Paderno(R) brand.

Very nice, fresh apple salad. We used this as a side with grilled chicken breasts and rice. I used white wine vinegar and added salt and pepper. I found it to be a great combo of sweet and tangy. The salt brightened everything up and the honey smoothed it out. Read More

This was an interesting salad - refreshing on a hot day. First I must admit that I substituted toasted slivered almonds for the pinenuts. Otherwise I made the recipe as written. This would make a better side dish than main dish (as we had it). We found the salad very acidic overall so I may try reducing the vinegar next time. Read More
