Asian inspired recipes are always popular in my house and I can’t pass up a good stir fry, potsticker, or noodle dish even if I try. A few weeks ago I shared my Easy Chicken Stir Fry recipe and today I wanted to share my newest favorite lunch creation…Easy Asian Noodle Salad with Soy Vinaigrette. This was inspired by an awesome salad idea I saw at a restaurant and since then I wanted to create my own version. Because I’m typically short on time, I like to use lo mien for my salad rather than trying to reinvent the wheel and create my own. Let’s see how easy this recipe is…I start my salad with fresh chopped romaine lettuce, sliced carrots, sliced of fresh cucumber and then I add some red cabbage to the mix. Finally, I add some lo mien noodles, I let them cool and then I add onto the salad.
The noodles really add the perfect pop of flavor to the salad and are delicious warm or cool.
And if you want an excellent sauce for on top of your salad, you’ll enjoy this Soy Vinaigrette recipe:
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1⁄2 cup peanut oil or 1⁄2 cup grapeseed oil
