Gluten free summer noodle salad
I'm so much into salads, especially during the hot summer months. And the best thing about it: you can make salads out of pretty much everything ;)
Lately I made a "fridge clean out" variation with my favorite gluten free bean noodles (made out of edamame, the noodles are very low in fat and rich in proteins).
I combined the noodles with farm fresh champignons (from my auntie), fresh spring potatoes (finally there are Swiss ones) and a not so regional avocado (hello- can we please live in Los Angeles again?)...I added some spicy cashew nuts (by Pakka) and nope it did not affect my baby at all, I guess he'll like spicy food as much as his mommy.
The salad goes perfectly fine as bbq side dish, with a cheese platter or just like that.
Wishing you all a very nice summer evening!
