Spiralizer or Julienne peeler ?
Years ago I saw a man at union square selling vegetable/julienne peeler in the city. The man was able to make vegetable noodles, remove potato eyes and blemishes, and so many magic tricks with just one simple peeler. This was the era before spiralizer was even invented so it attracted a huge crowd watching his performance on the streets.
The shape of the julienne peeler reminds me of men’s shaving razors with a slightly bulkier shape. It’s super sharp and you can peel and julienne practically any vegetables.
I love that I can make straight lined long vegetable noodles easily without having to set up a spiralizer machine on my kitchen counter. And best of all, you can easily avoid the vegetable core as you peel through the layers so the noodles are less likely to get wet and watery.
This cucumber noodle salad goes perfectly with my Thai no peanut Peanut Sauce. The sauce is naturally sweet and creamy. Just pour, mix, and pair with some protein and you are good to go! You can also use my Japanese-inspired Roasted sesame dressing or Chinese style Asian “peanut” sauce for a quick flavor change-up!
