Edamame and cabbage maifun rice noodles

As promised, the noodle salad recipe from Tuesday's post is below. This recipe was inspired by several  noodle dishes in Plenty. I used brown rice maifun noodles, which are similar in texture to angel hair pasta.
This tangy noodle salad is excellent hot or chilled. It's vegan and gluten free. The husband gave it a thumbs up with the addition of seared scallops.
Serve with Sarah's kimchi or my ginger carrots for a healthy boost. Happy Friday, friends!
