I’ve tried to go vegetarian once a week on and off for a long time. I think it’s a fine way to find to expand our palates and discover new foods. Usually I fall back to my old vegetarian standby, beans. But I recently discovered Chinese Style Vegetable Fried Rice from Ling Ling and knew I could make a vegetarian meal out of it by adding a delicious salad alongside the fried rice. This Spiralized Cucumber Salad was a fresh, crisp side for the perfectly seasoned fried rice.
Do you Spiralize? Try this spiralizer recipe!
I’ve had a spiralizer for my KitchenAid for quite a while now and I just don’t use it enough. But I did pull it out to make cucumber noodles for this dish. If you don’t HAVE a spiralizer you can simply slice your cucumbers into very thin slices are the salad will work just fine. The only thing I wouldn’t do with this salad is to add salt. If you add salt it will become a watery mess, so note to self don’t salt this salad.
This Spiralized Cucumber Salad came together in the time it took for the Chinese Style Vegetable Fried Rice to cook on the stove. That means this meal was literally done in under 15 minutes. The perfect meal when you’re in a hurry. If you’re interested in other quick cooking Asian Inspired frozen meals be sure to check out the other Ling Ling products.
