Asian Noodle Salad with Almond Sesame Dressing

Some people are allergic to peanuts, and some people just don’t like them. I’m one of the latter. So, I put together this recipe for a nutty vegan Asian noodle salad with almond butter, cucumber and carrots.

This easy recipe for Asian noodle salad is satisfying, and great for any time of year. The ingredients are simple. And one of the best parts is that it can be easily modified to your taste.

For instance, you could bulk it up with some marinated grilled or baked tofu. Or add some chili sauce to the dressing and kick it up a notch. Or mix up the vegetables (maybe red peppers, red cabbage, shelled edamame, or broccoli?). There’s lots of ways to customize this nutty noodle salad.

For a gluten free alternative, use rice noodles or your favorite gluten free noodles.
