This salad is so good. I mean, so good. It is quick to throw together, healthy and so delicious! You can do this vegetarian like I did, or make it with chicken Either way, it's amazing!
Start by chopping all your veggies. I used cucumbers, red cabbage, carrots, edamame, cilantro and green onions.
The edamame I used was frozen. Simply add to boiled water, and cook for about 3-5 minutes. drain and rinse with cold water.
Soba noodles are pretty easy to find. They are in most grocery stores in the Asian aisle. I love them in salads!
Add them to boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes, until tender, but not mushy.
Mix noodles and all veggies together. Top with peanuts.
Isn't this beautiful!
Make dressing. I always make mine in a mason jar. It's so easy to close the lid and shake to mix.
Drizzle it over the top and mix in until blended.
Serve, topped with more cilantro.
Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
