10 small zucchini spiralized or shaved
2 large carrots, spiralized or shaved

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
Combine all dressing ingredients except water in a large bowl and whisk together well. Keep whisking until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
If mixture is too thick, add a tablespoon of water at a time until it reaches desired consistency. The mixture should be somewhat thick, like white sauce but not as thick as pancake batter. If mixture is too thin, add a bit more peanut butter. Set aside.
Combine shredded zucchini and carrots in a large bowl.
To prepare individual servings place some of the shredded zucchini and carrots or pasta or a combination of the two in a serving bowl.
Add a 1/4 to a 1/2 cup of the dressing on top of the veggies/pasta and toss together to coat and incorporate.
Add garnish of bell pepper, green onion, diced cucmber and sesame seed if desired.
Alternatively, this salad can be made in bulk and allowed to sit in the fridge for 2 hours before serving to allow flavors to meld.
