Oriental Cold Noodle Salad (Low Fat/Vegetarian)

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad (Low Fat/Vegetarian) created by teresas

Soba noodles are easily found in the Asian section of your grocery store, you could substitute 1 pound of angel hair pasta for the soba noodles but the soba noodles are better to use ;-) Plan ahead this needs to chill for a minimum of 2 or more hours before serving, prep time includes chilling time. Add in some frozen thawed peas, steamed broccoli, or some cooked chicken or shrimp if desired.

    This is fabulous! I substituted apple cider vinegar b/c I wanted to get this marinating, I also put in thawed peas and carrots mixed and I can hardly keep from eating this. Thanks so much. At this rate there will be none left for tonight.

    Very good. DIdn't have enough time to let it marinate. I bet it's even better with longer. Added some snow peas. Served with Hunan Chicken #28287. Update: July 2010. Made again. Very nice flavor. Added broccoli slaw mix.

    I cut this in half. I did have trouble finding the SOBA noodles but finally went to a Japanese market. I did not cut the green onions or carrots down as I thought they were great in this receipe. I also recommend cutting thet lime juice down as it was too strong for me. Very nice salad and would be good for a luncheon. I definately will make this again.
