These veggies can be the decorative hit for just about any chicken, fish, or pork dish. They are easy peasy to make, and taste wonderful. Some of my favorite ways to use them is on breaded chicken or pork sandwiches, or as a topping to a breaded pork dinner. YUMMY. Let your imagination go wild. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    I have a device that creates small curlicues out of any veggie, and it’s ideal for this recipe. You could also use a mandolin, or cut away with a sharp knife.

    Chef's Tip: The salt is an optional item... some people like the additional saltiness... some do not. If you're not a big fan of salt, you can reduce it, or leave it out altogether.

    Chef’s Tip: The reason you don’t want to add the salt to the cold liquid is that it falls to the bottom your saucepan and, over time, can pit the surface of the pan.
