It’s probably clear from all my noodle recipes, that I am a huge noodle fan – in any form!  I love Italian pasta, Asin inspired noodle dishes, pasta salads, and delicious comforting soups with loads of cooked orzo. Gimme the carbs. 

This green goddess udon noodle salad is a giant bowl of fresh and tasty ingredients. I used a green udon noodle – but you can use any variety you can find at the store – and my favorite veggies.

Are Udon Noodles Healthy?

It depends on how you define healthy, and what fits into your dietary needs. I like these green udon noodles which contain chlorella and have vitamins included. However udon noodles can be high in sodium and contain wheat ingredients. I like serving mine with vegetables too, so I can get more nutrition into each bite!

  • Udon Noodles – I used these chlorella udon noodles for their gorgeous green color!  They also have added B vitamins and minerals, which are more nutritious than traditional udon.
  • Kale or Other Greens
  • Snap Peas or Edamame
  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Low Sodium Soy Sauce – I like using a low sodium soy sauce to reduce the amount of salt overall in my recipes.
  • Lime Juice
  • Agave Syrup:  I really like using this raw organic agave syrup because it’s a sustainable sweetener, plus it’s an inexpensive natural sweetener so I always keep a few of these bottles in my pantry.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives the perfect toasty flavor to the dressing of this salad. Toasted sesame oil is traditional in a lot of Asian dishes, and will give you salad the perfect flavor.
  • Sesame Seeds – I love adding a handful of these sesame seeds to finish off this recipe! These seeds add a nice crunch and light flavor to this dish.
  • Red Chili Flakes: for a little heat! I like to add a few shakes to this recipe to give this dish a nice complex depth of flavor.

How Do I Make Salad with Udon Noodles?

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the udon noodles according to package instructions, and drain then rinse under cold water.
  2. Assemble the salad ingredients into a bowl, adding each vegetable at a time, and place the noodles in the center.
  3. In a separate bowl or mason jar, mix the dressing ingredients: soy sauce, lime, agave, and sesame oil.  Pour the dressing over the salad.
