I discovered this delicious healthy salad in Maui last year and now make my own version at home.
Here’s what’s in my favorite version of it:
Carol’s Healthy Salad Recipe
Any kind of lettuce. Add spinach or kale to amp up health benefits.
A small amount of cooked buckwheat (soba) noodles
Radishes, cucumbers, carrots
A small amount of wasabi peas
Dressed with ginger-miso dressing, it makes a really yummy meal.
You can also add tomatoes, squash, beans–anything you like.
Another option I love is to add gorgonzola and use balsamic dressing instead of miso-ginger for a stronger flavor.
The biggest barrier to making a healthy salad recipe is that you have to cut and chop. The buckwheat noodles take about 4 minutes to cook.
To avoid that excuse. I like to make these in advance, using mason jars and dressing only upon serving. This way, they’re already on hand. But only put the wasabi peas in just before serving as they get soggy in the fridge, even without the dressing.
Try it! And let me know how you like it.
