tangy kelp noodle salad


we made this kelp noodle salad the other day with loads of fresh, raw veggies and it was so refreshing and delicious. kelp noodles taste nothing like kelp, they taste like firm rice noodles and they’re sooo good for you! we also used upland cress that is a wonderful small leaf green with kind of a spicy, tangy flavor.
