    Hi Kristyn. I will be making this for sure. Is there a place to tap for nutritional info? Thanks!

      Hello! I have not entered this into a nutritional software for that information. It will (obviously) depend on your portion, and whether you divide up your recipe into 8 servings.

      For 8 servings, this has about 300 kcal, 37 g carbs, 6 g fiber, 11 g protein, 13 g fat. Of course, you can adjust the content of this salad to suit your needs. The whole grain noodles are fibrous and contribute protein. Their nutty flavour balances well with the nutty salad dressing. I think of this recipe more of a method meaning that you could just whip it all together, using what you have on hand. There is a fiber-rich carb, veggies and protein. Protein, fiber and flavour = yummy and satisfying food!
