Tri-Color Soba Noodle Salad
with shrimp

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
This noodle (or green papaya for our paleo followers) is full of textures, colors, and flavor. It works great for a weeknight dinner, makes great leftovers (no need to warm up), and would be a wonderful addition to a summer potluck.
Smarts: Make one day before serving so that the vinaigrette has extra time to seep into all the ingredients.
