Spiralized cucumber salad (serves 1)-


1/2 large English cucumber

1/2 medium sized, somewhat firm avocado (not too mushy, not too hard)

2 Tbsp. raw pepitas

2 Tbsp. soy sauce or liquid aminos (or more to taste)

1 tsp. rice vinegar

dash of each: cayenne pepper, salt, and chili powder

Spiralize the cucumber and discard the core. Place in a bowl. Next, peel the avocado half and place flat side down on a cutting board. Slice very thinly along the width (2-3 mm slices), fan out slices into a straight line, curl the line into a spiral until a "rose" starts to shape. (
