Carrot Noodles, Walnuts, Apples, and Sesame Ginger Dressing

I live on meal prep. It saves me time during the week and makes packing my lunches up for work a breeze. This is an easy recipe perfect for a light meal with the sweet apples, the lovely crunch of the walnuts and carrots is a delight with the sesame ginger dressing.

Tip: When spiralizing it often leaves a ‘core’ piece of the vegetable from the middle. Save these pieces and toss in the freezer to use the next time you make a smoothie.


Yield: 2 meals


1 lb. carrots, peeled

1/4 cup raw walnuts

2 apples

For the dressing:

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. pickled ginger and brine

2 tbsp. sesame oil

pinch of salt and pepper


Wash and peel the carrots. Use a spiralizer to make carrot noodles.  Wash and remove the apple core or cut around the core and cut the apple pieces into a small dice.

In a small bowl combine the olive oil, sesame oil, pickled ginger with the brine, and a little salt and pepper. Mix with a fork and add more oil/ brine to reach desired consistency.

Load up your meal prep containers with each ingredient and when you are ready to eat, mix the carrots, walnuts, and apples. Drizzle the dressing over the top, toss lightly, and enjoy!
