These Asian Squash Noodles is super colorful, vibrant and a great addition to any lunch or side at dinner. You can replace gluten filled noodles with fresh, healthy, living vegetables and feel just as satisfied.

Did you know you can eat butternut squash noodles raw? That’s right! They are super crunchy flavorful and fun spiralized in a salad. I find you need to dress them with a creamy rich dressing so they are palatable raw and this almond butter dressing does just the trick.
