1/2 cup reserved soaking water

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon agave syrup

1 teaspoon liquid aminos (or tamari/soy sauce)

1/2 teaspoon white miso

 

For the salad

1 package of kelp noodles, rinsed thoroughly

2 carrots, julienned

1 red bell pepper, sliced very thinly

1/4 head of red cabbage, cored and grated or very thinly sliced

3 cups baby spinach

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

2 cups chopped mango

chopped almonds for sprinkling

sesame seeds for sprinkling

 

Instructions

  1. Combine the dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend or process until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Combine the kelp noodles, spinach, carrots, bell pepper, red cabbage, and cilantro in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss until combined. Serve topped with mango, chopped almonds, and sesame seeds. Enjoy!

Notes

Be sure to always rinse the kelp noodles well with warm water before using and I like to roughly chop them so the strands aren’t so long.
