Healthy Shanghai Noodle Salad

Like many adopted dishes, this is more of an Chinese inspired dish rather that what you would actually find in Shanghai. However, inspired it is! This colourful mix of bright, crunchy veggies and chilled buckwheat noodles is a refreshing and delicious meal. Buckwheat is great for your heart function, blood pressure and these noodles are naturally gluten-free (however if celiac check the facilities where they are produced).
