Shaved Vegetable Salad Recipe

Ribboned Vegetable Salad

From Camilla Salem, YumSugar


I used the dressing from an asparagus and hard-boiled egg side dish for this salad. For a milder onion flavor, substitute half a shallot for the white onion.

Shaved Vegetable Salad Recipe


  1. 1 cucumber, peeled
    1 zucchini
    1 yellow squash
    3–4 multicolored carrots
    1 fennel bulb
    1/2 white onion, peeled
    1/4 cup red wine vinaigrette
    1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped


  1. With a vegetable peeler or mandoline, shave the cucumber, zucchini, squash, and carrots down to the seeds, or as far as you can go. Toss them in a large bowl.
  2. Thinly slice the onion and fennel — a mandoline works great for this — and toss this into the bowl of shaved vegetables.
  3. Add the vinaigrette to the bowl and toss with your hands.
  4. Place the vegetables in a serving dish. Toss and sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Serves four to six.
