A quick, easy and super healthy summer salad for kids. I’ve spiralized carrots, cucumber and apple to make this delicious side salad that the whole family will love!
I’ve been trying out loads of different salad recipes lately to try to find one that my kids actually enjoy.
And this Spiralized Carrot, Cucumber & Apple Salad has been their favourite so far!
My recipe is super simple, it literally contains just four ingredients:
- cherry tomatoes
I used a spiralizer to create the spaghetti like ribbons. You can also use a smaller hand held spiralizer and I’ve linked some brands below.
A julienne peeler would also work. This won’t create spaghetti ribbons but will instead give you very thin strips.

I’ve been looking for ‘easy’ toddler salads and after hours and lots of other websites, yours is the only recipe I found helpful this time around! Thank you.
This is such a fab idea. I really struggle to get the kids to have salad normally but they really liked it served this way. Hurrah!!!
