Buckwheat Noodle Salad

Buckwheat Noodle Salad

The best time for me to eat raw are weekday breakfasts and lunches (which, I guess, covers most of my meals). Our household weekday breakfast is commonly just a lot of fruits and nuts. And If I am at home at lunch time, I also grab something fresh from the fridge and enjoy raw. I may add some hemp seeds or nut butter to add some needed carbs and protein.
 Yesterday, I had a friend over and I am still hesitant to serve fully raw (depending on my guest, of course). Not everybody perceives a raw meal as a “meal” per se. But I was in the mood so I found a midway: A buckwheat noodle salad incorporating a ton of fresh ingredients and a rich sauce. Here is the recipe:

  1. This looks amazing! Any idea what I could try subbing for the mango (not such a fan) – would rock melon or peach work? I’m imagining the sweet juiciness adds something pretty special to the salad, so I don’t just want to leave it out 😉
