Sesame Miso Noodle Salad ★★★★★1 review

“This Sesame Miso Noodle Salad contains tons of raw veggies, your favorite noodle, edamame for added protein, and a creamy sauce that is actually good for you. I chose a thin udon noodle for this dish because they are my personal favorite but feel free to go for a gluten free pasta, rice noodles, or even soba noodles. The choice is yours!” ~ Liv
