Serve this pasta salad cold for a refreshing and guilt-free summer meal! It appears sophisticated with toppings of a homemade shredded egg crepe, chicken, and cucumber, but it is actually simple to make. With low-calorie, carb-free NutriNoodles, this salad is keto-friendly and high in protein.

Using sugar-free honey, such as xylitol honey, keeps these Low-Carb Honey Sesame Shirataki Noodles low in carbohydrates and free from added sugars. If you use regular honey, you will add a total of 180 calories and 50 grams of sugar to the recipe, or 12 grams per serving. Brown sugar monk fruit and stevia are other calorie-free options.

This is a great recipe for taking on a picnic or having for lunch or dinner. It is far lower in calories and carbs than a typical mayo-laden pasta or potato salad. Consider making it ahead of time so the dressing has time for the flavors to blend. Then chill it in the fridge and serve it.

Ingredients:

  • 2 packages of NutriNoodles Shirataki Noodles
  • ¼ cup of toasted white sesame seeds (you can buy them toasted or toast your own white sesame seeds by heating oil in a pan adding the sesame seeds, and stirring until they are toasted.
  • 2 tablespoons of xylitol honey
  • ¼ cup of rice wine vinegar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of sesame oil

  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of sake
  • 4 green onions or scallions, cut into strips
