Did you ever go to a party and someone brings that crunchy Asian ramen noodle salad? Well I love that stuff but I didn’t have all the ingredients for it, and I didn’t want to eat the ramen anyway so I came up with this little recipe; Asian Veggie Noodle Salad.
Ok, I admit, it gives me a chance to use my spiralizer again. I love that machine … it’s so much fun to play with. So to be honest I made this recipe because I was craving that Asian ramen salad and it was a chance to use my spiralizer. However this is a healthy lunch or dinner and it’s a good way to get more veggies in your diet. It also tastes great so you should give it a try! 🙂
Asian Salad Dressing
I made this two times already. The first time I fiddled around with all my cool Asian sauces and condiments that I had bought on a recent trip to the Strip District. I wanted to make the perfect Asian salad dressing. However this was not as easy as it sounds. I think I was using too many ingredients and so I went back to a dressing I used in my Apricot Pecan Kale Salad. It’s simple and tasty and with the addition of sesame oil, it worked perfectly with this salad. I did get to use a few of my new goodies. 😉
Asian Noodle Salad Recipe
So whip out that spiralizer if you have one. If you don’t, you could always hand cut your veggies or use a peeler. However I do not have the patience nor the skill for such knife work so I go with the spiralizer.
For veggies I used cucumber the first time but opted for zucchini the second time. Cucumbers are much more watery and I preferred the firmness of the zucchini instead. Either way it will taste fine. I also used some carrots for crunch and green onions for both garnish and taste.
Then I topped this yummy salad with grilled chicken because I ate this for dinner. Oh yeah, I also added some crunchy sunflower seeds too. Yum, yum, yum. If you have the grilled chicken on hand, this recipe will literally take only 10 minutes to make.
