Can't wait to try this - although suspect I'll struggle to find frozen soya beans. Are they easy to get?

Made a pleasant change from the usual sandwiches but wasn't the tastiest salad I've ever had.

I really love this, it's so quick, cheap and delicious! It looks lovely and colourful with the carrot and beans too. Excellent lunchbox filler.

I didn't have any soy sauce so used a little sesame oil instead and it was lush! Great to make the night before and bring into work. Really filled me up!

I also used cress instead of alfalfa, and normal pasta and i added a little garlic infused olive oil.. a nice healthy salad very tasty and lasted long enough in the fridge for me to have lunch for 3 days.

I used fresh broad beans instead of soya beans. I needed a good diabetic salad for a BBQ i was having for family and friends (with Some type 2 diabetics included) and this went down well. Not a fabulously memorable salad, but nonetheless tasty.

This is really good. I was looking for some good lunch alternatives to the usual sandwiches and salads, and this has come up trumps!

I couldn't get the alfalfa's, so I used Cress instead.
