In the wintertime, there are so many more options for salads than lettuce and greens. Instead of tossing a bowl of greens, try noodling it up instead — vegetable ribbons make a more colorful (and hearty) base for your lunchtime bowl. And as fun as these new spiralizer gadgets can be, here's a smaller, simpler tool to get your veggie ribbon fix: the classic julienne peeler.

It's a simple little tool — just a peeler with serrated teeth that can scrape ribbons and noodles off a hard vegetable like a carrot or rutabaga. Unlike a food processor, it sits quietly in a drawer until you need it. This particular model from Kuhn Rikon also has a stainless steel handle for better durability.
