It was quite yummy. I got to use several of my favorite gadgets too. So here is how it all happen.
First there was the line-up on the chopping block.
Then the zuchinni and butternut squash begged for the spiralizer, (they must have seen this video on YouTube).
That is one of my most favorite tools. I used the ribbon tool to get thin slices of the butternut squash and then cut them into smaller chunks. I then salted the squash and set it aside for 10 minutes or so to "wilt" and then rinsed it. This is the first time I have used butternut squash raw, and I must say it won't be the last time. I really liked it.
Ok, so next the garlic and onion jumped into the, hmmmm . . . I call it the pull string chopper but I don't know exactly what it is called . . . a chopper I guess. Four pulls of the string and it is all chopped. I love it!
The cucumber, orange bell pepper and the tomato went under the knife with the avocado, and joined the onion, garlic, corn, zucchini and butternut squash in the bowl. From the refrigerator I heard the purple hulled peas begging to join the gang, so what could I do but agree. So much color.
I think the real reason for all these veggies deciding to jump into the dish is that they wanted to wear the wonderful dressing that appeared in our refrigerator. It was unfortunately (fortunate for me though!!) left behind by Dianna at our raw pot luck. It is an amazing dressing that she made full of wonderful ingredients from Alissa Cohen's book, Living on Live Foods.
It was a match made in heaven!
