Spiralizers and zucchini have essentially become inseparable. Zoodles, zucchini pasta – whatever you may call it – are light, easy to make, and a staple of healthy eating. So when we got our hands on an Inspiralizerwe decided to beyond the classic pairing, and see just what else we could spiralizer (spoiler alert: there’s a whole cookbook filled with ideas!) Enter one meal, entirely composed of spiralized eats!

- 1 large cucumber
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- ½ teaspoon white wine vinegar
- salt & pepper
- 2 tablespoons feta cheese
- ¼ of a small onion, thinly sliced

Spiralize the cucumber into a bowl and gently toss with the olive oil, white wine vinegar, and salt and pepper. Assemble the remaining toppings into the bowl, toss with the cilantro, and serve.
