A yummy salad with a bit of crunch, sweet, and sour. Great as a main meal or a side.
6 leaves napa cabbage, shredded
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 cup green onions, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 cup pomegranate, seeded (see video below for instructions on seeding)
2 avocados, chopped
1/2 cup almonds, smashed
1 lime, juiced
soba noodles - a handful about 1" in diameter
Chop & Mix
Chop the napa cabbage, bell peppers, green onions, and carrots, and toss together. Seed the pomegranate and mix in. Gently toss in the diced avocado and almonds. Juice a lime and mix in as well.
You should use about 1” in diameter of a handful of noodles. Cook the soba noodles according to the package directions, usually about 4 minutes in boiling water, then rinse under cold water. Mix in with the veggies.
If you want a little extra pizzazz, add in a touch of Trader Joe’s Asian Style Spicy Peanut Jalapeño Vinaigrette.
