Ingredients

  • ½ (12 ounce) package NO YOLKS® Extra Broad Noodles

  • 2 cups chopped green beans (fresh or thawed if frozen)

  • cup balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced garlic

  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 4 (4 ounce) boneless, skinless salmon fillets

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion

  • 1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper

  • 1 cup torn fresh basil leaves

Directions

  1. Prepare the noodles according to package directions. Add the green beans 4 minutes before draining.

  2. Whisk the vinegar with the syrup, mustard, garlic and 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) each salt and pepper until combined. Whisk in the olive oil until well combined. Measure out and reserve 2 tablespoon (30 mL) of the dressing. Toss the hot cooked noodles and beans with the onion, red pepper, basil and remaining dressing.

  3. Meanwhile, lightly coat a nonstick pan with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Season the salmon with the remaining salt and pepper. Add the salmon and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until just a hint of coral remains. Brush salmon with reserved dressing. Serve the noodle mixture topped with a piece of salmon.

Tips:

Replace the Extra Broad Noodles with NO YOLKS(R) Broad or Dumpling Noodles.

This noodle toss can also be served with other protein options as a tasty side dish or on its own as a lunch option.

Replace the dressing in the recipe with 1/2 cup (125 mL) bottled balsamic vinaigrette blended with a little maple syrup to taste.
