Chilled Spicy Noodle Salad to make for your next backyard cookout. All the flavors without needing to worry about keeping the food warm! Are you sick of bringing the same old thing to summer parties? Us too. We decided to change it up and make a new staple, Chilled Spicy Noodle Salad. The one thing we can count of this summer is cookouts and barbecues. And if my mother taught me anything, it’s to never show up empty handed. Sure you can bring a store bought dessert or a case of beer but nothing makes you feel better than your friends biting into your food and hearing them happy yum. This recipe can be made in under 30 minutes and you don’t need to worry about keeping it warm.

From our kitchen to yours, cheers!
