Spiralizing is an awesome and entertaining way to get fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet without incorporating complicated and calorie-heavy ingredients. Anything that gets you excited about cooking is worth some buzz, and we have some “in-spiralizing” ideas to get you started on this spiral sensation!
Spiralized Apple and Fennel Salad with Wheat Berries
This dinner will be as tasty to the tastebuds as it is to the eyes. Wheat berries take a bit of time to cook (about 30 minutes), so make them on the weekend when you have a little more simmer time. Then, use them throughout the week for fast dinner and lunches.
1 medium red apple, such as Gala
1 medium green apple, such as Granny Smith
1 medium bulb fennel
½ small red onion
1 tablespoon nonfat Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon koshersalt
½ teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1 cup cooked wheatberries
1. Spiralize apples on smallest grates, fennel and red onion on flat blades. To get rid of some of the onion’s ‘bite’, let onion spirals sit in an ice bath for 5 minutes. Drain.
2. In a large bowl, combine Greek yogurt, lemon juice, salt, sugar and pepper. Whisk until sugar dissolves.
3. Toss apples, fennel and onion in dressing and let marinate for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cooked wheatberries.
