The weather is warming up (finally!) and I think it is time to bust out some delicious salads!!
The best part of this salad is the dressing – isn’t it always?! This dressing is made with peanut butter (can sub for any nut/seed butter), ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and a pinch of sugar. You will be HOOKED!
The Low Down On Soba Noodles
Soba noodles are an amazing source of fiber which helps us to feel full and satisfied! This is truly the key to a wonderful salad. They can be eaten both hot and cold and are wonderful for salads (like the one here) or soups! Authentic soba noodles are made with 100% buckwheat which is an ancient grain that provides us with amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Manganese (important for bone health, glucose metabolism, and wound healing)
Thiamin (needed for energy metabolism and healthy cell growth and function)
Protein (One cup of cooked soba noodles contains 6 grams of protein)
High in Soluble Fiber
These noodles are extremely digestible and support cardiovascular health while also being about half of the calories as typical white starch noodles.
