Spiralized Sake Carrot Salad with Nori Granola Topping

Adapted from Heidi Swanson. You can substitute toasted seeds or nuts for the granola, but I highly recommend you try the granola. You can find the Nori granola here.

For the salad:

  • 4 large, thick carrots, spiralized on thinnest setting
  • 1 English (hothouse) cucumber, spiralized on thick noodle setting
  • 1/2 small-medium red onion, very thinly sliced and soaked in cold water until you need it
  • 2-3 cups Sesame Nori Granola

For the dressing:

  • 1 1/2 T dry sake
  • 2 T light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 t fine sea salt
  • 3 T avocado oil

For garnish:

  • toasted and seasoned nori sheets, optional


  1. Toss the spiralized carrots and cucumbers together in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Make the dressing--whisk together everything but the oil. Then slowly drizzle the oil into the dressing while whisking briskly.
  3. Drain the onions and toss them into the salad.
  4. Pour about 2/3 of the dressing over the carrot mixture and toss.
  5. Serve the salad in individual bowls topped with a handful of the Nori Granola and the option of more dressing on the side. Garnish with toasted and seasoned nori sheets if desired.
