Cabbage Soba Noodle Salad

Receiving a CSA box, is like being part of a food game.

“With these items make a healthy meal for you and your family with leftovers for the work week. You have one hour to complete your task. A complimentary gift from your co host includes a glass of Pinot Noir. Do you agree to this challenge? Go!”

This meal is also inspired by Kalli at Fit and Forty Something. If you follow her on instagram, you will see the woman rocks. I’ve never seen so many creative salads on a daily basis.  If she only delivered…. Smile
