As part of our National Vegetarian Week special, we’re bringing you three healthy veggie recipes a day. Today, nutritionist Alli Godbold teaches us how to make a delicious spiralized salad

Nutritionist Alli Godbold shares her amazing spiralized salad with Japanese dressing. We tried this on set after filming and I can guarantee you this is one recipe for the memory bank. The Japanese dressing is so flavoursome that you won’t miss meat at all.
