Asian Shrimp Soba Noodles With Vegetables

Asian-Shrimp-Soba-Noodles.jpg
I usually keep the fridge stocked with my favorite Asian flavors at any given time. Rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, gluten free soy sauce, sriracha sauce or chili paste, limes and ginger are staples for my cupboards. I am sure nothing I make is ever an authentic Asian dish but more of a fusion of flavors I .
If you are afraid of the heat or just don't like the spiciness feel free to omit the jalapenos and sriracha sauce. This salad isn't super spicy but the jalapenos and sriracha sauce add a nice subtle flavor with just a touch of heat. Also the veggies can easily be subbed out for what you have available in your fridge at home just try to keep in mind the flavors of the vegetables so they compliment an Asian dressing.

This recipe was put together for Yahoo Shine Supper Club. The theme for the month is pasta! Yum!

I love sugar pea's, the kids get so excited when they find them in the fridge to snack on raw. Remove ends off of sugar peas or snow peas. You will need about 2 cups.

Shred 2 cup cabbage.

Mmmm...Don't forget the 2 cups each of cucumber, broccoli, bell peppers and mung bean sprouts. I'm missing the picture's for the last few.. Don't ask what happened, I'm still trying to figure that out.
