Asian-style Zucchini Noodle Salad (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 10/08/2015 - Want a light, healthy gluten-free vegetarian lunch that's tasty and offers a departure from a more standard noodle dish? Try this lovely Asian-style salad made with spiral or long julienne zucchini "noodles."

Photo: CC--Tony WebsterSome people make this with raw zucchini, but that's hard to digest, so I blanche the zucchini noodles first.

Ingredients:

  • 3 to 4 medium zucchini, spiral cut or long thin strips
  • 1 cup carrot, grated
  • 2 green onions, thin diagonal slices
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups thinly sliced and roughly chopped red cabbage
  • ½ large red bell pepper, sliced thin and cut into 1-inch segments
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped

Dressing:

  • ⅓ cup rice vinegar seasoned with salt, pepper and sugar
  • 2 tablespoons quality olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes

Directions:
If you have a food processor or other spiral vegetable slicing tool, use it to make the zucchini noodles.

Otherwise, cut zucchini into very long, thin strips, enough to make about 5 to 6 cups of zucchini noodles.

Place zucchini noodles in a metal strainer and immerse in boiling water for about 30 seconds, until blanched.

Once lightly blanched, remove the zucchini noodles and allow to drain well.

Place the drained, blanched zucchini noodles in a large bowl. Add the cabbage, carrot, bell pepper, onions, and cilantro.

In a medium bowl, whisk seasoned rice vinegar, olive oil, dark sesame oil, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes.

Pour the dressing over the zucchini noodles and vegetables and gently toss to combine. Or, alternatively, serve dressing on the side.

Serve immediately.

I just re-read your original post and I am more convinced than ever that it's Candida. The rashes and feeling like something is stuck in her throat are both things I have been very familiar with! Look in her throat with a light and see if you can see any white patches of any kind. Candida has ...

If I thought celiac was what I had, it would be easier for me to get myself into ketosis. Just by saying hey there's a reason you should do this. Gluten intolerance is one thing, knowing what's wrong with me would be another. For people with fears like mine, therapy doesn't work. I have tri...
