Salmon Soba Noodle Salad
This Japanese inspired Salmon Soba Noodle Salad makes a good and tasty meal. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour or a combination of buckwheat and wheat flours. If you’re looking to minimise gluten, then soba noodles may be a good alternative. When you’re making the dressing, consider making a double quantity for a salad another time. You can also change or add veggies to your liking or what you have on hand or what’s in season. Cut them on an angle to show the texture. Spinach and green beans can also make a tasty addition. Watch Justine Schofield show you how.
Did you know: Soba is the Japanese name for buckwheat. It usually refers to thin noodles made from buckwheat flour or a combination of buckwheat and wheat flours. They contrast to thick wheat noodles, called udon. Soba noodles can be served either chilled with a dipping sauce or in hot broth as a noodle soup but in our case, a salad. Soba noodles offer a lower-cal alternative to wheat pasta. Each cup of cooked noodles contains only 113 calories or just over five percent of the daily limit in a 2,000-calorie diet. White spaghetti, on the other hand, contains 220 calories per cup, while a whole-wheat version contains 174 calories.
