Let's Eat Y'all - Asian Noodle Salad

It's the last Fridayof the month and you know what that means.  I am linking up with

 Let's Eat Y'all!

This recipe is well used.  It's a great go to in the summer because it's quick and easy and requires very little in the way of heating up the kitchen.  I haven't though about it yet this year until I saw Ally's post on Copacetic in Carolina for her Soba Noodle Salad.  Her recipe is next on my list to make.

Asian Noodle Salad

6 oz Soba noodles (cooked)
4 oz shredded cabbage
½ cup shredded carrots
½ cup shredded radishes
½ cup red onions – sliced in halves
1 oz cashews or peanuts chopped

5 oz Cole slaw dressing (Marzetti or you can make your own)
2 oz honey
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Chili garlic sauce

To make the sauce, mix together all the ingredients.  Use a small amount of the chili sauce until you achieve the desired heat.  Add the noodles and vegetables, the toss until coated.  Serve topped with the chopped nuts.

Sometimes I like to add shrimp or shredded chicken to make it a meal.
