Hey guys! Back with you to share another great Asian recipe. We have several places close by that we love to order a Chinese Chicken Salad from. BJ’s has a great Asian Salad. The Habit Burger is another place we love to order this salad from. One of our favorite homemade recipes is this Copycat Applebees Oriental Salad! But when we saw this Asian noodle Salad recipe, we wondered how it would compare to our favorites, and decided to try it.
I’m happy to report that it was awesome! It’s different than the others, because it has the linguine, but the taste is similar and oh so good. We changed it up a bit, by using coleslaw instead of spinach and we opted to leave the red pepper flakes out. We also added some of our favorite ingredients like carrots and edamame, which make it so good. We may even try adding sprouts next time, but it’s great as is. 😉
So many great ingredients in one salad!
Summer time is always a great time to try out some new salads, so give it a go and let us know what you think. We have a feeling you’ll love it just as much as we did. Also, be sure to add your fried wontons right before serving so they don’t get soggy. Or, better yet, you can add them to a bowl and have people dish out their salad and just top with the wontons. 😉
