September 14: Thai Noodle Salad

Filed under: Recipes — Tags: , , , — anotheryarn @ 10:34 am

Last summer I made the black bean & quinoa salad multiple times, this summer I made this salad multiple times.  It makes great picnic food too (though it doesn’t keep very long, even using napa cabbage I think the veggies get too soft after more than a day in the fridge).  It is a great hot weather dish too (the only cooking absolutely necessary is boiling water for the noodles – and once it hits boiling you can turn off the heat).  When I made this dish for our picnic I didn’t bother cooking the tofu but when I pull out the remainder for dinner the next night I did pan-fry the tofu and it is better that way.

I do make a few adjustments to the recipe.  I use closer to 1/2 lb of rice noodles and I use a lot more lettuce (or napa cabbage in this instance) and carrots than the recipe calls for.  This time around I think I did close to 2 cups carrots and 4-6 cups of shredded cabbage.  I make the full amount of marinade and dressing.
