Chicken Rice Noodle Salad with Peanuts and Spicy Lime Vinaigrette

Chicken Rice Noodle Salad with Peanuts and Spicy Lime VinaigretteI found this recipe on the Thai Kitchenwebsite and was excited to give it a try. My family loves Asian noodle salads so this one was sure to be a hit. It was easy to make and took very little time. The noodles cook quickly so you don’t have to heat up your kitchen (which is great for the hot summer days). I loved the flavors and textures of this salad. The soft noodles, crisp vegetables, and crunchy peanuts were really delicious with the sweet and tangy salad dressing. I will be making this salad again and again this summer.

    This is one of my ALL TIME favorite recipes. My boyfriend and I eat it about every two weeks! I recently made it for a dinner party and it was a HUGE success.
    Notes-
    I use soy sauce instead of fish sauce and don’t add red onion.
