Garlic & Cashew Noodle Salad

Garlic & Cashew Noodle Salad

Spring is here! Soon I’ll be overdosing on asparagus and peas and all those spring vegetables that I’ve been missing for months. It’s finally starting to warm up. And warm weather means salads. Green salads, somnology vegetable salads, disinfection grain salads and, my favorite, cold noodle salads.

Garlic & Cashew Noodle Salad

This particular salad is something I could eat every week. The noodles are slick with sesame oil, soy sauce and rice vinegar – toasty and tangy. Baby bok choy is sauteed with garlic, cashews and tofu (chicken or steak if you prefer). Everything is tossed together with fresh garlic chives and mint leaves. It’s a delightfully refreshing salad that you can eat again and again. It just tastes like warm weather and sunshine to me. Hello, Spring!

  2. Hey Mel, looks great! Why the brown rice vinegar? what’s the difference between that and regular rice vinegar.. just curious. I’ll try this one either way!

  3. Wow, they make brown rice vinegar? I’ve never heard of it, but it sounds yummy!

    I love cold soba noodle salads. Great recipe!

  4. I love cold soba noodle salads as well! The slippery soba noodles lend well to a slick dressing. :)

  5. Love that kind of salad with soba noodles! I make one with peanuts and green onions but this one sounds even better!

  6. Oh my that sounds fantastic! I’m so excited about how all of these wonderful spring veggies are being showcased!

  10. Just what I crave!! Now I know what my next meal will look like. Wonderful blog :D

  11. Love love love this! However, when I pulled the leftovers from the fridge the next day, the soba had gotten all starchy and kind of yucky in consistency. Any tips on how avoid that or if I did something wrong? On day one, it was all delicious. I could eat it every day.

  12. Erin – That happens every time I have soba noodles. If you let them come down to room temperature and add a little more toasted sesame oil, they should become somewhat better. They’ll never be like the first day though – it’s just something about soba noodles I think…

  13. Thanks for an amazing recipe, love your blog
