The trick to a low-calorie soba salad is to mix a 1 oz. serving of noodles with a ton of vegetables to fill it out! With this salad, I used some of my favorite veggies like shredded carrots, snap peas, red cabbage, edamame, cucumbers and more. But this salad is easily customizable to what you enjoy or what you have in your fridge!


-1 bundle soba noodles ( package usually contains 3 )
-1 cup carrots, shredded
-¾ cup sugar snap peas, sliced diagonally
-handful red cabbage, shredded
-2 Persian cucumbers, seeded and sliced thin

-1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
-1 tablespoon Thai basil, chopped
