A healthy, veggie packed meal that will make as a great lunch or dinner.

I'm always looking for recipe ideas that can serve as multiple lunches throughout the week. This recipe is just it! You can add and throw in pretty much anything you love into this salad.

Ingredients in thai noodle salad

To make this, I used egg noodles because it's what I had on hand. To keep this vegan or even as a healthier option you can use rice noodles.

Peanuts or cashews can be used in this recipe.

Use shredded cabbage, carrots and onions.

I used chicken because I'm not vegan but you can use pretty much any protein you prefer or leave it out all together.

To make the dressing, you will need peanut butter, garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, maple syrup/honey and water.
