Posted by on Oct 10, 2013 in Recipes | 0 comments

This recipe came about after a busy morning of spinning and grocery shopping.  I wanted something quick, light and nutritious for lunch and this fit the bill perfectly.  I love the crunchy texture of kelp noodles! And of course you know by now that I love peanuts. This colorful salad is not only good for you, it’s extremely satisfying!
