This is a variation of Thailand’s classic papaya salad, which I discovered during my many Southeast Asia travels. With the crispness of the vegetables and freshness of the dressing, this is a lovely light, healthy dish. Enjoy it as an easy-to-make starter. Or, for a more substantial main course, add to each serving a few grilled prawns or slices of grilled or roasted chicken. Thanks to the Kenwood spiralizer, the preparation is so speedy, which does all the hard work for you in no time at all

  • Spiralized vegetable salad with pomegranate, chilli and lime dressing


    For the dressing:
    • 1 red chilli, deseeded and coarsely chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and coarsely chopped
    • 2 limes, juiced
    • 2 tbsp Thai fish sauce
    • 4 tsp palm sugar, coarsely grated
    For the salad:
    • ½ courgette, medium-sized, stalk removed
    • 1 carrot, medium-sized, peeled
    • ½ cucumber
    • 3 spring onions, finely sliced
    • ½ bunch coriander, coarsely chopped
    • ½ bunch mint, coarsely chopped, plus extra leaves to garnish
    • 40g pomegranate seeds, pith removed (optional)
    • 60g peanuts, unsalted, toasted in a dry pan until golden
  • Method

    For the dressing:
    • In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients and set aside.
    For the salad:
    • Using the Kenwood Spiralizer attachment on your Chef slow speed outlet, fit the spaghetti cutter, spiralize the courgette, carrot, cucumber and place them in a large bowl.
    • Add the spring onions, coriander, mint and pomegranate seeds. Lightly crush the toasted peanuts and add about 2/3 of the nuts to the vegetables in the bowl.
    • Pour the dressing over the salad, and lightly toss it.
    • Arrange the salad on a large serving dish and sprinkle with the remaining toasted peanuts and a few mint leaves.
  • Chef Notes

    • These salad ingredients can be replaced by any other crunchy vegetables that lend themselves to being spiralized.
    • For a more substantial dish to serve as a main course, add stir-fried tiger prawns or slices of grilled or roasted chicken.
