Squash and Citrus Slaw

  • 1 half Spaghetti Squash – medium size
  • 1/4 c. Orange Juice
  • 1 T. Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Sugar (or to taste)
  • Salt and Pepper – to taste
  • 2 T. Cilantro – chopped
  • 1/4 c. Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Green Onion – chopped

Place squash, cut side down, on microwave-safe plate. Add a few tablespoons of water; cover; microwave on high for 2 or 3 minutes until flesh is crisp, but can be separated with a fork. Let stand 2 minutes. Discard seeds and pull flesh apart with fork to create strands (2 c. to 2 1/4 c. needed). Cool. Combine orange juice, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in salad bowl. Add squash strands, cilantro, red pepper and onion. Toss to blend and chill well.

Serves 4 to 5
