Where I am from, the start of school is right around the corner! As a mom and teacher, I can tell you how stressful it is to get everyone’s lunch packed and out the door on time. You feel me, right?!

I love this easy Thai noodle salad recipe. It’s full of TONS of flavour, lots of different textures and vegetables! it comes together in about 15 minutes and keeps well in the fridge all week!

I love how customizable this recipe is too. I like to add more of a vegetable base while others like to add more noodles to theirs, omit different vegetables or make it more spicy.

Hope you enjoy this recipe!

More noodles if that’s your jam!
