Healthy Noodle Salad

Hi all! I’ve missed you guys… I’ve turned into this freaky health freak lately. Well, freaky because I freak myself with my choices of food! I can’t stand to eat unhealthy anymore… I’m not complaining but it’s more of a lifestyle change and I’m loving every bit of it. I do love my doughnuts, but occasionally. I hope this phase is here to stay 🙂

Soba noodle salad is healthy, nutritious and super tasty! Its the perfect balance of good carbs, protein and greens. I love how the tangy sweet dressing compliments the salad! Noodles soak up the dressing if left untouched for a while. I do like to make my salad in the morning if I’m serving it for dinner… that way all the flavors get to know each other better.

Soba noodles are generally served cold. You can use just any variety of noodles you fancy! My main protein in this salad is chicken. You can substitute the meat with tofu or cottage cheese or eggs.

I topped my salad with toasted sesame seeds for that added crunch. Crushed peanuts will work too. I’m attaching my video link below and I’m hoping you guys subscribe to my YouTube channel, Liquorish!

Have an amazing day y’all!
