Somen Noodle Salad With Ginger-Cilantro Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

A copycat recipe of a Trader Joe's pre-made salad I have tried to duplicate. All ingredient amounts are estimated. Best results when salad is allowed to marinate. Feel free, as I have to play around with the ingredients. For a vegan version, substitute agave nectar for the honey.

Tasty and easy! A great make ahead dish! I skipped the coconut and topped with chopped peanuts and extra cilantro.
