The Perfect Vegan Salad

When people think of salads, they often imagine a bowl of leafy greens. But salads can be so much more than that, especially when you’re following a vegan diet. This Asian-Inspired Noodle Salad is a testament to this. It’s a dish that’s hearty enough to be a meal on its own, filled with a variety of textures and flavors that will keep your taste buds excited.

Ingredients for the Noodle Salad

The base of the salad is noodles. I used brown rice noodles, which are gluten-free and absorb flavors well, making them the perfect canvas for our spicy cashew dressing.

I love to spruce up my noodles by tossing in some fresh veggies like bell peppers, carrots, and cucumbers. To make it extra satisfying, I throw in some thinly sliced red cabbage for a nice crunch and edamames for the extra plant based protein.

And for the ultimate tasty combo, I finish it off with some diced mango, sliced scallions, and cilantro. Yum!

The Dressing: Spicy Cashew Dressing

This salad’s highlight is its dressing. By combining the naturally rich and creamy texture of cashews with garlic, ginger, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, and a subtle hint of maple syrup for a touch of sweetness, you can create a delicious blend of flavors.

This dressing is the perfect blend of creaminess, tanginess, and spiciness. It’s so delicious that you’ll feel like putting it on everything!

Bringing it All Together: Asian-Inspired Noodle Salad with Spicy Cashew Dressing

To assemble the salad, toss the noodles and vegetables with the dressing until everything is well coated. Then top the salad with thinly sliced green onions, diced mango and cilantro.

The result is a noodle salad that’s hearty, flavorful, and packed with fresh, crunchy vegetables. It’s a vegan salad that’s satisfying and full of flavor.

Vegan Asian Noodle Salad is just the ticket. With fresh, crunchy vegetables and a spicy cashew dressing
