Cook this: quick & healthy – cold soba noodle salad with ginger soy dressing

Totally overdue for a quick and healthy one, my bad! With the weather warming up here in Australia, this is a great, easy meal you can thrown together quickly for dinner, and enjoy left overs for lunch the next day. I love making this with simple, easy, canned tuna, but if I have a bit of extra time, grilled chicken or pork works perfectly, too.

The salad itself pretty simple:
– soba noodles (allow them to cool before using in the salad)
– grated carrot
– sliced cucumber
– avocado
– roasted peanuts
– protein of choice

But that’s not the exciting part – it’s the dressing that makes this special. It’s a great salad dressing, pretty strong and full of punch, so it works best with plainer, simpler flavours and salads.

Ingredients (makes enough for two salads)
– ⅓ cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
– 1 tbsp sesame oil
– 1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely grated
– 2 tsp caster sugar
– 1 tbsp soy sauce
– 1 tbsp cold water

If you enjoy your salads a little on the spicy side, add a little fresh chilli in, too. Then, whisk it all together, pour over your salad, mix and enjoy!
