This is a refreshing Rice Noodle Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing that’s big on flavor and very simple to toss together!
I recently made a batch of my go to Peanut Sauce to dunk some veggie spring rolls in. Yum! I decided to use some of the remaining sauce in a salad. I had some random vegetables, lettuce, cabbage, and herbs in the refrigerator and threw together this delicious salad. The flavor combination is fantastic… I especially love the combination of mint, basil and cilantro! You could use any Asian type noodle you like, I decided to use up some thin rice noodles today.
I think you’ll enjoy this Rice Noodle Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing. It’s so fresh and delicious… perfect salad for a warm summer day!Print
