Asian Buckwheat Noodle Salad [VIDEO]

The rainbow of colours in this salad is both attractive and indicative of a diverse array of nutrients. Inordinately high in antioxidant vitamins A and C, it’s also high in calcium and iron. One thing to note: although buckwheat itself is gluten-free, most buckwheat noodles sold in North America contain wheat – so they’re not a gluten-free choice. Make sure to read the label carefully if you have a sensitivity.
