Low carb and rich in fiber noodle salad with sweet& sour dressing

最終更新: 7月1日

Although we are stuck in the house, the season is gradually shifting.

In last couple days, it has been pretty warm in Tokyo.

When the summer is here, I start craving for easy fresh salad even more.

Today’s dish is what I often make over the summer, which I never get bored with.

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 it any of Japanese local supermarket in Japan.

How about your country?

Even though, Konyaku 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 to rice noodle is an another option!

I hope you can try making dressing for add more variation to your salad.

Please tag me if you ever make it!

This is how the shirataki look like.

Make sure to boil the Shirataki before you eat it.

Toss everything together and dig in!!

Together with Japanese mustard and chili oil is my favorite way to eat.



-the vegetable can be anything can be eaten as raw.

-If you are plant based,perfectly ok to leave crab stick.


-Konnyaku itself has a strong earthy flavor. Make sure to remove it by boiling for 1min.

-Sushi vinegar already contains salt and sugar. If you are using a regular vinegar, make sure to season with salt and sugar.

<Storage time>

Store it in a airtight container in the fridge for 3 days.
