My over-scheduled days will come to an end and I can focus a little more on this blog and training for my marathon in October. Sort of… I still have 4 kids and 6 cats to tend too! As busy as my days can be, I love creating healthy recipes for my family and now I can share them with you!Shredded Salad with Cilantro Dressing 8- runcooklaugh.com

I have a few toys in my kitchen that have helped me expand my culinary ideas. This salad is a perfect example. I recently purchased the XL2000 Vegetable Chopper so I would be able to get a bit creative especially when it came to a salad. When making this dish, I have only used a XL2000 Vegetable Chopper, but I think you will be able to shred the vegetables with a boxed grader as well. Using the stringer/medium grater blade for the XL2000 Vegetable Chopper helped me achieve the consistency and texture that really works perfectly together.Shredded Salad with Cilantro Dressing - runcooklaugh.com

This salad also refrigerates well and continues to hold its crisp texture. Actually the overnight marination process enhances the flavour combination of the dish. The aromatic, pungent and spice of ginger is balanced out with the sweet taste of the asian pear along with the other ingredients making it a perfect medley.Shredded Salad with Cilantro Dressing - runcooklaugh.com

Instructions
  1. Use the stringer/medium grater blade of the XL2000 Vegetable Chopper and shred all the ingredients separately. I leave the skin on all the ingredients because it is rich in fiber and nutrients. Just cut the ends off the carrots, zucchini and cucumber. For the pear, cut it in quarters, take the core out and then place in shredder skin side down so the skin doesn't peel off.
  2. Then toss the ingredients so they are mixed together.
  3. Separate a portion into a bowl and add the dressing and the toppings.
