Asian Noodle Salad

This salad is PERFECTION.

I love everything about it.

It’s beautiful to look at.  A rainbow of colors!  The picture below doesn’t do it justice.

It’s got loads of veggies.  We always need more of those at our house.

The dressing is awesome.  I want to drink it straight from the measuring cup.  (Not really, but I couldn’t stop “tasting” it).

It serves a crowd.  Or makes lots of yummy leftovers.  I halved the recipe and still have a ton leftover.

It can be dinner (especially with grilled chicken added, as I did), lunch, or a side dish.

My old favorite Poppy Seed Chicken Salad has been replaced!

    Thanks for your recipe recommendations. This looks great! I made the spinach and ricotta stuffed shells recently and my husband (who normally pooh-poohs anything without meat in it) raved about it. And my toddler ate it with gusto, too! Score!
    Keep them coming!

  2. Ooooh that looks yummy! 🙂

  3. Amy- So glad your family enjoyed the Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Shells! My husband is also skeptical of dishes that don’t have meat, and as for my son…well, if you read the blog, you know how picky he is!

    Corinne-Thanks! It was SO yummy! I finished dinner last night and was already looking forward to having it again for lunch today.

  4. I just added this recipe to my menu next week! glad you liked it so much makes me happy I am doing that!

  5. YUM! I am going to try this one for sure!
