Asian Kelp Noodle Salad and Organic Girl Giveaway

I’ve got another tasty recipe for you!  Last week I was sent some products from the wonderful folks at Organic Girl.

logo organicgirl Asian Kelp Noodle Salad and Organic Girl Giveawayphoto3 300x225 Asian Kelp Noodle Salad and Organic Girl GiveawayI was really excited to do a little experimenting in my kitchen with the Five Happiness blend.  The five happiness blend includes baby bok choy leaves, baby red chard, tango, mizuna, baby arugula, baby spinach, baby green chard, baby green romaine and baby green oakleaf lettuce.  Organic girl has a wide variety of organic, fresh and tasty greens.

I had just ordered a three pack of Kelp Noodles from Vitacost.com and wanted to use those as well.  I was craving a salad on Sunday because it was finally feeling like spring and I needed a break from soups!  Kelp Noodles are a great, healthy, raw alternative to using pasta.  They are wonderful in salads or stir fries.  What’s great is that you don’t have to cook kelp noodles.  Just rinse and cut them to size!
