A colorful, vegetable rich asian noodle salad that is perfectly filling and satisfying.
My love for asian flavors continues but this time it’s in the form of a fresh asian noodle salad!
Noodles have got to be my favorite and I crave them all the time.
Thin rice noodles like these or vermicelli are the best option for this salad but you can also use soba, naengmyeon or jap chae.
During the warmer months, having a cold noodle dish is so delicious.
The secret to the best cold noodles are to boil or soak them then rinsing under cold water.
The dressing is made with all of my favorite asian flavor condiments. You most likely already have these on hand.
If you are gluten-free, leave out the soy sauce.
Don’t skip the mint and basil in this salad, it really elevates the aroma and flavors. If you can find Thai basil, even better!
Other vegetables that work great in this salad are bell peppers, edamame, spinach, snap peas and watermelon radish!
This recipe is plant-based and vegan.
You can also add protein to this salad. Baked tofu that is already seasoned would be a great addition to this already vegan asian noodle salad.
