PEANUT SOBA NOODLE SALAD
This colourful soba noodle salad is perfect for hot Summer days, BBQ’s and lunches at the park. You can easily adapt it by using other crunchy in-season veggies (bell peppers, cucumbers, green beans, snap peas), or by adding your protein of choice (edamame, tofu, tempeh).
Makes 4-6 servings
- 1/3 cup toasted peanuts, roughly choppedFor the dressing
- Cook the soba noodle according to the package directions. Once tender, drain in a colander and rinse under cold water. Let cool completely.
- In a blender (or using an immersion blender) blend all the ingredients for the dressing: Peanut Maple Chipotle Butter, rice vinegar, tamari and water. You should get a smooth, creamy, but pourable sauce. If the sauce is too thick, add a bit more water as needed.
- Transfer the cooled noodles to a large salad bowl. Add the shredded cabbage, carrot ribbons, and about half of the mint and cilantro. Drizzle with a portion of the sauce and using tongs, toss well until the noodles and veggies are all coated. When ready to serve, drizzle the remaining sauce on top and garnish with the green onions, toasted peanuts, and remaining cilantro and mint.
