This is a great salad to take to a gathering or to keep in the fridge and nibble on all week.  It’s gluten-free and flavor-full. And it may be the easiest thing I’ve made in quite a while.

Trader Joe’s sells bags of sun-dried tomatoes, but I have to get the Annie’s dressing and soba noodles (buckwheat noodles) at another grocery store.  So hopefully you have a store that carries all of the ingredients (with no additives, of course!).

In a large bowl combine buckwheat noodles, edemame, an entire jar of Annie’s Asian Sesame dressing, and sea salt and ground pepper to taste.  After noodles cool, add the chopped sun-dried tomatoes and stir.photo 4You now have a gorgeous and delicious dish to share!
