Hope you guys had a great holiday weekend. In case you missed it, I blogged over at FoodieFresh on Sunday and posted a few refreshing dishes like this chilled noodle dish. What do you eat when it's 98 degrees out?
Chilled noodles with kale & avocado
1 box of buckwheat (or soba) noodles, cooked according to package
1 c of kale, thinly sliced
1 medium cucumber, sliced
1/2 avocado, cut into chunks
1/4 red onion, chopped
1/2 c cilantro
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp honey
1 tsp tamari
juice of half a lime
2 tsp gomasio (or toasted sesame seeds)
1.5 tbsp sesame oil
Cook noodles according to package directions. Pour into a colander and rinse with cold water. Put noodles in a large serving dish. Massage the kale with you hands—before adding to the noodles—to soften the texture and make it easier to eat raw. Add kale, cucumber, avocado, onion and cilantro to the noodles. Mix vinegar, honey, tamari, lime, and gomasio. Add sesame oil, mix well, and pour over noodle mixture. Perfect dish to take on a picnic or a cookout with friends.
