Asian Noodle Salad is traditionally made with chemical filled ramen noodles. Skip all of those chemicals and use rice vermicelli noodles for a healthy and delicious salad ready in 15 minutes!

I love this Asian Noodle Salad. I’ve had lots of variations of it over the years in Toledo. It’s a very popular dish to serve at baby and bridal showers. Probably because it’s just as easy to double or triple the recipe as it is to make a single batch. I’ve had the salad with ramen noodles and glass noodles. Unfortunately I couldn’t find glass noodles and there was no way I was going to use ramen noodles. Why? Because…

Ramen noodles are particularly unhealthy because they contain a food additive called Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), a preservative that is a petroleum industry byproduct. They’re also incredibly high in sodium, calories and saturated fat.- Food Revolution

Do you need more justification? It’s crap. It’s terrible. Don’t be tempted by its crunchiness. Just let it go and use glass noodles or rice vermicelli noodles. And for the crunch throw in extra almonds.

I used a Napa Cabbage for the recipe but you could use a simple head of cabbage that you buy at the local grocery store. I added lots of edamame and shredded carrots too. But go ahead and customize this recipe as you wish. (There you go Haley- you have my permission to omit the cilantro!) I really think the tastiest part of this salad is the dressing. It has a sweet and sour flavor with a touch of sesame oil flavor. It’s really lovely! Again- I used agave. Don’t have it? Use honey or sugar.

This recipe makes enough salad to feed the whole family and for lunch tomorrow. If you’re going to send it to school with your little one’s keep the almonds on the side. (My daughter refused the salad today for lunch because I added the almonds and her school is a nut free school)

Yields 10-12 side servings
