Asian Kelp Noodle Salad
Guess what??? I found kelp noodles at Whole Foods last week! Ever since I had them at a raw cafe in Austin, TX (you can read about my experience here), I've been looking for them. I was about to cave and order them online when, lo and behold, there they were. So I bought a couple of packages. I even sent one off to my care package swap partner, though she hasn't received her package yet.
Here they are:
And here's a delicious recipe for you!
Asian Kelp Noodle Salad:
1-12 oz package of kelp noodles, rinsed and cut to desired length (I'd use scissors)
1 cup shredded cabbage (red or green)
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup shredded broccoli (or chopped very finely)
4 stalks celery, sliced thinly
3 green onions, sliced thinly
2 large leaves of kale, torn off stem and into bite-sized pieces
black sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup almond butter (or peanut, sunflower, etc.)
1/4 cup agave nectar
a few drops of sriracha (optional)
wedge of lime for serving
Combine all of the vegetables except the noodles, into a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together. Whisk until well-combined. Pour the dressing onto the vegetables and toss. Just before serving, add the noodles and mix them them in well (they will stay crispy longer if you wait to add them). Serve, sprinkled with sesame seeds and a lime wedge (or sprinkle lime juice over the salad first).
And Happy Anniversary to my S :)
