1 spaghetti squash
enhancements of choice
dressing, I recommend NAKANO seasoned rice vinegar
--1 spaghetti squash (cooked, pulled into spaghetti strands with a fork, and chilled)
Part B (the enchancements, or the "jewels"):
Any of the following enchancements or toppings, cooked and chilled are divine. Decide based on your preferences/tolerances.
--halved cherry tomatoes***
--green or yellow beans
--cooked pureed greens
--boiled/halved small potatoes***
--green/yellow zucchini(really good if they're grated)
--herbs of choice, fresh or dried
--boiled plantain slices
--steamed artichoke hearts
Use your imagination. This is a wild and colourful salad that I totally adore!
The dressing is really simple with just enough sweet and tang and zero fat. Just sprinkle on some Nakano seasoned rice vinegar, a little sea salt, herbs as desired.
Fresh lemon or lime juice is another option, as is balsalmic vinegar. Fatfree, hfcs-free, safe Italian dressing works to if you like that.
Another option, is salsa or chutney, or cranberry sauce/chutney/salsa.
Another option is a quick red sauce with beet puree or orange sauce with carrot puree or green monster sauce with puree of greens. Blueberry ketchup isn't bad either.
If you're into tomatoes, tomatoe sauce and if peppers are your thing, pureed roasted/peeled peppers work, too.
