The Joys of a Spiral Slicer
How about making a little go a long way? Trying to lose weight? Fill your plate with colorful, tasty, high water content foods. A little goes a long way when you use the Spiral Slicer, a novel gadget that lets you defy that old admonition "don't play with your food".
I think using the slicer is such fun!

Imagine filling a bowl using one zucchini, two red radishes and a two inch piece of daikon radish. Adding a bit of zip is a diced green onion. Dressing it? Why not try a very slight drizzle of sesame oil, a few drops of Umeboshi vinegar and a generous sprinkle of black sesame seeds. But there are so many options! Use your imagination and slice up a bowl soon!

The total effect is pleasing to the eye, takes but moments to prepare, and provides a satisfying, low calorie, high fiber lunch.

The radishes remind me of ribbon candy...
