Soba Noodle Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ellie_

I was looking for an interesting salad to go with some Asian marinated fish skewers and this was wonderful. When I made it I skipped the salad greens and bean sprouts (the grocery stores were totally out of bean sprouts!!!) and served the Asian tuna skewers on the salad -- delish! If following the WW flex plan this is 6 points per serving (without the grilled tuna). Recipe source: Great Cooking Every Day.

I am sorry to say that our family did not really care for this. It seems rather bland. It was a very nice looking dish though. I think the addition of peanuts to the salad would help. Also Soba Noodles cook very quickly so be careful not to overcook them. I omitted the mushrooms and did not serve mine on the greens.
