Asian Noodle Salad

This Asian Noodle Salad Recipe was created by my friend Karlen Poma from Monterrey, California. Karlen works as a private chef, and her dishes are always as beautiful as they are creative. I traded some Eastern Shore Honey for this amazing Asian Noodle Salad recipe. It was a sweet deal.

It’s always about the quality of ingredients that you use that make the difference in how delicious your meals are. We encourage you to use all organic and fresh-picked ingredients from the market whenever possible. For this granola recipe you will need:

  • pasta

This is a very easy recipe to put together. Follow these three steps, which won’t take more than an hour after work.

Step 1 Cook the pasta

Cook pasta al dente, rinse/drain with cold water set aside in a big bowl.

Adapting our Asian Noodle Salad Recipe made with Honey

Modify this dish in any number of ways to suit your taste. Change up the protein if the chicken isn’t your thing. This recipe would be delicious with grilled rockfish or, consider serving this as a side dish to another Asian inspired main course.

We always encourage you to play with your food! Here are some ideas on how to modify this amazing recipe:

  • Julienne some carrots, scallions, red pepper, green pepper, snow peas, bean sprouts or any of your favorite veggies in season, simply stir fry in a little of the extra oil mixture and toss them in!
  • Add salted peanuts or cashews into the mix
  • Swap out your favorite protein, instead of chicken, try seared blackened rare tuna, salmon or try these noodles with grilled shrimp.
  • Sprinkle fresh chopped green onion or sesame seeds on top

This is delicious with all the extras or by itself.

As a side note: In this recipe, Karlen used soba noodles, there are many options of noodles for Asian inspired dishes. Asian noodles vary in ingredients, size and length and shape based on the region of production. Decide which noodle you like best, choose from buckwheat soba noodles, ramen noodles or udon noodles.
