"Very good light side dish for a hot summer day. I used the thinnest attachment on my mandolin and it worked perfectly."

"Yummy! The horseradish adds a nice kick to the veggies. Serve this with a chicken breast and you've got a great meal."

"This recipe is much quicker than 25 minutes: I'd say 15 at the most. I had a little trouble finding the right tool to get the wide ribbons and found that a really fat carrot peeled a bit so it was flat yielded good results. The zucchini was much easier. I did not have horseradish on hand so just used a little horsey sauce instead. I also added lemon pepper seasoning. These were fantastic! Even my kids, who do not like cooked vegetables, liked them. I let some of them get a little crispy and sweet and that was great, too. A really beautiful, easy, tasty and healthy side dish."
