Thai Noodle Salad
Thai noodle salad is basically a summer roll but a salad version of it. It is the easiest and the simplest salad you will ever make! It comes together in just 10 minutes, can't beat that. You can add any vegetables you like to this. You can also add tofu for protein. This is a easy meal prep recipe as well. Just cut everything or buy everything precut, make the dressing ahead of time and put it together in no time.
I used instant noodles which I didn't even have to cook, just soak in hot water. You can you glass noodles or brown rice noodles. You can even skip the rice noodles completely and make this salad with cucumber noodles, zucchini noodles, or carrot noodles. You can add more veggies to this as well. The options are endless, you can make it the way you want!
