Hey guys! If you've been following me on my instastories then you know how much I've been loving trying out new recipes using our spiralizer. We've had one for awhile that you have to spin yourself with a handle so it was always such a hassle to get out, but since getting this new BELLA Automatic Spiralizer - I've been using it all the time! I love how it has four different settings to get spaghetti, ribbons, linguini, or fettucini noodles with your veggies so the options are endless. The assembly is so quick and with just the click of a switch you have spirals for your meal in seconds. It's such an easy way to get more veggies into your day and all of the dishes I've tried out lately have been amazing that I can't wait to share this delicious salad with you today. Summertime always makes me think of fresh veggies from the garden and light salads that can be tossed in a little olive oil or balsamic and be ready to go. This recipe is a take on a Caprese salad that will have you dreaming you're on the coast of Italy. Hope you love it as much as me!
And since I think that a spiralizer is a kitchen essential you need to have around this summer, I have teamed up with my friends at BELLA Housewares to giveaway two of these automatic spiralizers for you and a friend! That means there will be two winners so the chances are good to win! So hurry on over to my instagram @chelseyhale to enter and let your fiends know how they can win one too. Good luck!
