The whole rainbow in a single bowl of food! This Asian Ramen Noodle Salad is exactly that and much much more. This delicious and healthy recipe will take you only 10 minutes to make and is perfect for sharing with a bunch of people. So gather the whole family and all your friends so we can get this rainbow party started.
We are trying to get the most out of this last few weeks of amazing weather. Fall is starting to make an appearance but fortunately, we are still able to go outside and enjoy some sunshine. And of course, to make our outings perfect we always bring food with us.
The noodle salad we are making today is one of my favourite summer recipes. It is super easy to make, you can pack it up and take it with you, and it is really fresh. So, whether you are having a picnic or a beach day, a day at the park or it is simply warm and toasty outside, this recipe is for you.
I basically threw a bunch of raw vegetables, mixed them with ramen noodles, and added a delicious and flavourful sauce. You will see a few different ingredients in this ramen noodle salad, all the flavours and textures mix in so nicely, you will love it. And the best part is that it is a super-easy way to get a healthy meal on the table without too much hassle.
I will never get tired of saying, the more colours on your plate the better. The colour on your food comes from its different components or nutrients. So, different purple veggies have similar components which are different from the ones in white veggies and green veggies. You get the idea, many colours means many nutrients.
You don't have to break your head or spend long hours in the kitchen to get a delicious healthy meal. This recipe is the best example. For this recipe, all you have to do is slice and shred your veggies, cook your noodles, mix the sauce ingredients together, and that is it. Seriously, it will take you 10 minutes to be done.
I added ramen noodles to this already amazing salad to get it to the next level. Ramen noodles are great to make a salad a bit more filling without making it too heavy. And I love using ramen noodles because I can find them everywhere and they are really easy to cook. I always follow instructions on the package to make sure I get the right consistency. Otherwise, you might end up with a soggy mess if you overcook them.
The dressing is the easiest thing ever. You only have to mix lime juice, maple syrup, soy sauce, and toasted sesame oil. This comes out so delicious with all the asian tones you can imagine. It's a bit tangy, a bit sweet and the smoky flavour from the oil seals the deal.
And lastly, make sure to make a big batch of this noodle salad, everyone will come back for a second round!
