I had plans of making traditional slaw in honor of Memorial Day weekend, but was given some leftover carrots and cucumber so I decided to make both. I also wanted to make use of my new spiralizer only to find it is very difficult to spiralize a carrot so I used my “carrot pencil sharpener” I bought in Europe last summer.
This is also part of a marathon post of four different recipes all using up similar ingredients. Most of the recipes only called for 1T of cilantro, 1 clove of garlic, and 1 inch piece of ginger. This was my chance to create different meals using up ALL of my leftovers.
1 spiralized cucumber
1C carrots, shredded or spiralized (about 2)
1tsp minced ginger
1tsp sriracha or hot sauce
1tsp soy sauce
1Tblsp lemon juice
salt to taste
I like the 1:1:1 ratio of this recipe. I also like that there are no other directions than to combine all the ingredients and let it rest so all the flavors settle in the veggies. I drained some of the cucumber juices after resting.
