Yes, the spiralizer is a bit of a novelty, but it helps make things a bit more playful. I’ve found that my ambivalence towards cucumbers is immediately assuaged when I turn them into noodles, and I’ve yet to meet a spiralized zucchini dish I haven’t liked. This dish capitalizes on the novelty of the spiralizer to create a vibrant and colorful veggie noodle dish that might just change the way you feel about salad.

Give this salad a rest in the dressing before serving so the veggies have some time to soften and absorb the flavors. And don’t feel like this particular selection of veggies is the only way to go — I was aiming for a spectrum of colors and textures with this dish, so when customizing, just keep those two things in mind.
