Asian Noodle Salad

Asian Noodle Salad

I bring this recipe every year to my Life Groups Chinese New Year Party.  I love all the brightly colored vegetables mixed with the sweet and salty dressing. I’ve adapted from an original recipe from the Pioneer Woman to meet my Clean Eating needs.  The beauty of this salad is, you can just wing it, adjusting the ingredients of the salad or the dressing as you like.
