Asian Noodle Salad

This salad is a meal by itself, balanced with a variety of colorful veggies, edamame, and whole grain pasta. The sweet and slightly spicy peanut dressing pairs perfectly with a mix of Asian style veggies.

👩‍🍳Directions

    ✏️ Tips & Hints

    • We love to use seasonal veggies so you can try any combination you enjoy. You can easily add baked tofu or tempeh in place of edamame or any favorite legume.
