  • Interesting to see any western learn to use Thai kitchen equipment or tried Thai spicy sauce. That ปลาหมึก fish source is my favorite source too.

  • I actually have one of those that I bought in Japan a few years ago (not the exact same model but it does the same job). Beetroots can also be used and make some amazing and colorful salads! I also used it to make some crispy roasted potatoes once.

  • When I clicked on, I was wondering what kind of spiralizer you were going to use. I’m in the market for a new one hope they ship to the US:). Recipe looks great too!

  • Love this healthy salad recipe and will try soon with my GEFU spiralzer.  And just wondering if you will cook something with your Mom ever again. It was fun to view and that skillet chicken dish is a keeper in our house.  Thanks, Donal!

  • I will give you some other way to make your salad so much more better.  
    +Try green papaya instead of cucumber 
    +After you cut carrot and papaya, mix it with salt first and wait for about 20′. After that, you wash it, wash it clean and take all the water out, squeeze it and mix it with your dressing and ingredient. It will taste more crunchy, 
    +let’s it observe for about 10-15m (sorry, i don’t know exactly the word) before you serve. 

  • I bought myself a spiralizer for my birthday and have been using it for EVERYTHING. Love it so much. Can’t wait to try this beautiful salad soon. It looks incredible! Absolutely loving your recipes, Donal!

  • Omg Salad Looks Awesomesauce . Gotta try it soon . btw u shud try expermenting with Mediterranean Food and flavours ie arabic Food . U surely gotta giv dem A handful of Donal’s Magic:D

  • Well now I know where I’m going to spend next months pay-check on! Can’t wait to try this recipe out! Will probably try making it with my not so very flashy knife skills first though… I might lose a thumb but I’m sure it’s worth it! 

  • Time to bust out my spiralizer again! Great twist on one of my favorites. Can’t wait to make this for dinner with some grilled fish/chicken. Thanks for the wonderful recipes as always!

  • Mmm, looks yummy. I have a spiralizer that is much simpler in design, something like a pencil sharpener, but more work than yours. I use it to make zucchini noodles for super lo-cal “pasta” dishes. Also great for sweet potatoes that fry up quickly.

  • Hi Donal, I have that exact model! It’s great I love to do potato’s with it for mounds of skinny chips! Also brilliant for veg stir fry. And healthy courgettei pasta and sauce!
    Now I just have get a ladder to get it down from the top shelf,With all the other gadgets:) Thanks. 

  • Love your recipe Haste!!!!But speeking as a Greek,a traditional greek salad can not be without red or even better fresh onion!!!!Love your chanel!!!!!!!Lots of love to Nic!!!

  • Nice alternative of the Greek salad and it is spiced up a lot! The original Greek salad though has only got tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, olives, feta cheese, olive oil, salt and lots of oregano! In Greece we also like overdoing it with the olive oil so that we can deep loooots of bread into it!!! ������

  • The problem I have with this kind of product placement… it teaches people the need for a product and it doesn’t offer a alternative. This is a clear miss use of your followers and so commercial. If you place a product do it humble and offer an alternative. Not authentic and I can only respect people that put cooking education and inspiration first … you lost a follower today. Sorry mate. Thumbs down.

  • I’d sure love to see you “get creative with the choping skills” and end up with something similar to that heheh
    I do have to try this! seems delish!

  • Would I give it a go?  Hell yeah, I can hardly wait to make it, looks so delicious.  I printed the recipe already.  Thanks again for this one!!!

  • Donal. Your chopsticks skill needs a little work lol. Grab more away from the middle of the sticks and more towards the top. Otherwise good.

  • Hi, Did you use the dressing in the salad? Ohhh that smile on your face while using the spiralizer tells how you love using it. Can I substitute fish sauce with something else cause I’m a vegetarian?
    Love,
    Candy…<3

  • I too am a kitchen gadget addict however I don’t YET have a Spiralizer, so i just used my food processor to slice the veggies and it worked great. It was a lovely salad!

  • aww Donal you are so funny!! but I am also a kitchen gadget addict, just didn’t think of offering them yet with hope to get them back lol ;0)))

  • I got a Gefu Spirelli for Christmas, which is like a mini version of the spiralizer. I wasn’t sure what to do with those spirals except what Donal showed in the video or using the zucchini version as a replacement for spagetti (which does not sit well with me, I mean come on, I love my spagetti!)

    What I discovered is that you can pan fry the carrot spirals with a bit of oil and add some honey at the end. Because it’s so thin, the carrot is cooked in about 2 to 3 minutes and makes an excellent side dish.

  • Vegetarian?����������More like pescetarian! Lovely video video though! Please could you make savoury pies? Like those mini pork pie things?:)

  • This recipe is good! I think I will just chop the carrots and cucumbers beautifully, as I do not have a spiralizer and I will use soya sauce instead of fish sauce. For me it is a super supper! Amazing for fasting! Thank you very, very much!!!

  • Looks delicious! Very interesting take on the classic Greek Salad. I was already thinking of making my favorite Greek Salad for dinner tonight but now I’m definitely doing it haha. Mouth is watering. My favorite way to make the dressing is lemon and olive oil (whisk together), clove or two of fresh garlic (minced or grated), salt, pepper, oregano. Tremendous. Great video! Thank you

  • Hey Donal, 
    Can you tell me where you got those mixing hands. Those Do NOT look like Bear claw utensils like i read somewhere. I am really looking forward to buying them.
    P.S. I am also a kitchen utensil collector. ;-p

  • I think I am going to attempt this with a mandolin first before I buy another gadget I am running out of room in my kitchen for gadgets. I might not have as long of veg noodles but I should be able to make veg noodles! Thank you for the wonderful recipe! 

  • That’s awesome!!! It looks fantastic with these beautiful colors and fragrant sauce. I just posted a video recipe for zucchini noodles (from a recipe that you find everywhere on the net but that I’ve changed with a mediterranean twist!) using my spiralizer:D So I’m happy to see a spiralizer on your channel too! Love it! 

  • I just bought a spiralizer and I’m going to make this ASAP! I’ve got some multi color carrots in the fridge so it will be even more colorful. Thank you for another awesome recipe, @Donal Skehan! And yay for kitchen gadgets!

  • You can add some onion and raw fish in the salad too.. I’m not sure about the name of the fish but it does taste nice with the salad
