KONNYAKU NOODLE SALAD WITH SWEET & SOUR DRESSING
My Low carb and rich in fiber noodle salad!!
I’m using KONYAKU NOODLE instead of using regular noodle.
Konyaku is made of type of yum which contains full of fiber. It is also known as a low-carb ingredients. Some people make a pasta with it. It can be any kind of noodle substitution.
You can find konnyaku any of Japanese local supermarket in Japan.
How about your country?
Even though, Konnyaku is not available, dressing I’m going to introduce here will go with any type of vegetables.
If you want to stick to noodles, swapping to vegetable noodles are smart option.
If you are not seeking for the low carb, swapping for the rice noodle is an another option!
I hope you can try making dressing for add more variation to your salad.
Toss everything when you eat it!
