An almost-instant salad made with the goodness and convenience of hot-smoked salmon portions and quick-cook organic soba (buckwheat) noodles. 

Smoked Salmon Soba Noodle Salad

I don’t know about you, but for me sometimes the simplest of dishes make for the most enjoyable meals. This Smoked Salmon and Soba Noodle Salad is no exception…

It might not look like much, but if you like Asian-inspired flavours, you will most likely fall in love this salad at first bite… And, if like Mr Chipconnoisseur you are not that into salmon; barbecue chicken, roasted duck, seared or even canned tuna would work as well. 

While soba noodles are made from buckwheat they also contain wheat flour and are therefore not gluten-free. For a gluten-free version, use rice noodles and tamari (instead of soy sauce).

Now, because it uses the convenience of hot-smoked salmon portions, it can be made literally in less then 10 minutes and is a great way to get some good fats into your diet. Personally, it’s one of my favourite lunches to have when I’m busy working in the kitchen, because it requires very little effort and space, yet tastes fantastic… It has that salty-sweet flavour combination that I find so highly addictive.  

So, tell me, what healthy convenience foods can’t you live without?
