Buckwheat Noodle SaladOn warm, summer days, a cooling salad seems like the ideal bet. It can be frustrating to always go carbless for lunch, however, especially when you’re craving a more filling meal involving pasta and rice. Luckily, there’s a solution. Asian noodle salads are hearty enough to be considered a main meal, but light enough to not weigh you down on a hot day. And, as a bonus, they cook up unbelievably quick.

In Bobby Flay‘s recipe for Buckwheat Noodle Salad, the dressing is made with pungent spices and condiments like tamari, sesame oil and chili sauce, mixed with ingredients like vinegar, sugar, ginger and honey to tone down the heat. Bobby also combines a slew of vegetables, including carrots, cucumbers and peppers, to pack a nutritional punch. The result is a filling and healthy summer meal staple that can be prepared in less than half an hour.
